  • Active Directory PowerShell SIDHistory Module Update 1.5

    I would like to thank everyone who has been using the Active Directory SIDHistory PowerShell module and sending me feedback.  Your input helps guide future releases like the one I am publishing today.

    I’ve been sitting on some updates for a while, because I prefer to release code that has been field-tested.  I also wanted to time this release with the upcoming PowerShell Deep Dives book where I have a chapter discussing the origins of this module.  The last update was version 1.4 in June of 2012.  This is update 1.5 in July of 2013.

    Summary of Changes

    I am excited to announce the following key improvements in this release:

    • SID history updates in ACLs can be added instead of replaced.
    • Create SID map files for security translation without needing SID history.
    • Track down old domains after their trusts have been removed.
    • Get error logging for file server paths that fail the ACL scan.
    • Automate SID history data collection across many servers and shares.
