Group SID

Group SID

Some time we require a SID for the group in active directory, using the simple inbuilt windows command we can get the group SID

You can use the below command to find the group SID

Group SID (Group to SID)

Groupname: sales_executes(Pre-Win2k Name)


dsquery group -name “groupname” | dsget group -sid


dsquery group -name sales_executes | dsget group -sid
dsget succeeded

    You have a typo in your command:

    dsquery user -name “groupname” | dsget group -sid

    Its actually:

    dsquery group -name “groupname” | dsget group -sid
