Hmmm. I noticed the similar thing on my system.

I also noticed, as discussed here, that the RID for my Domain Admins
group was wrong.

However I still have issues, even after fixing the RID as discussed in
this thread.

Just to clarify: Does belonging to the "Domains Admins" group mean you
should automatically get full administrator rights when logged onto
any computer?

Also, what is the difference between the terms "RID" and "SID"?
