  • PowerShell: SID Walker, Texas Ranger (Part 1)

    Do you remember SIDWALK?  This resource kit utility was written back in the NT 4.0 days to assist with domain migrations.  It used a mapping file to rewrite old SIDs with new SIDs across ACLs.  That utility is a teenager now.  It's time we rewrite it... in PowerShell.  In part one of this series we will learn how to parse SIDs out of SDDL that we receive from Get-ACL.

  • And now a word from our sponsor…

    Recently Microsoft's legal department asked me to remind you that, yes, I do work for Microsoft.  As such we have many disclaimers that you should be aware of when referencing content from this blog or using scripts posted on this blog.
