Sorry to get into the discussion, the previous statement is not clear to
me and I would like to make it clear that in an NT4 style domain all the
DCs must have the same SID, as the DCs have only the DOMAIN SID, this is
different from domain members which have a local machine SID but
recognize domain users with the domain SID.
