    WS2008 R2 SP1 : Deployement of template, Customization (Sysprep), Same SID ??

    Boug201110141 Lurker



      I have prepared a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 VM to be deployed as a template, I shutdown and converted it. The I deployed it and applied a Guest Customization. In the Customization Wizard i have selected "Generate New Security ID (SID)".


      The deployement and the customization was successful : Customization of VM **** succeeded. Customization log located at C:\Windows\TEMP\vmware-imc\guestcust.log in the guest OS."

      If I check the log, I see that a sysprerp has been executed with the good parameter (I think?) "Successfully executed command C:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /quiet /generalize /oobe /reboot /unattend:C:\sysprep\sysprep.xml"



      Now when I check the SID with PsGetSid v1.44 : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897417 , I have some strange result. Some VM have different SID and other share the same.


      I don't understand why some of the VM have the same SID. Where can I find more log to troubleshoot this issue ? Have I made a mistake somewhere ?


      Thanks for you help,
