Is it possible to get the SID of a domain different than the one your 
server is in?

e.g.: net getlocalsid ==> gives you the sid of the domain your server is in.
but suppose you would like to know the SID of another domain.

net getlocalsid DOMAIN2 ==> samba3 does not give the SID

[root at server root]# net getlocalsid DOMAIN2
[2003/09/29 11:59:04, 0] utils/net.c:net_getlocalsid(414)
   Can't fetch domain SID for name: DOMAIN2

If I'm not mistaken, this used to work.
Or: is it true that the SID is only dependent of the domain's name?


        Print the SID of the specified domain, or if the parameter is  omitted,
        the SID of the domain the local server is in.
