Many User Accounts, Local Groups, and Global Groups have a defaultSecurity Identifier (SID) or Relative Identifier (RID) value across allinstallations of Windows NT. These values can be displayed by using theutility Getsid.exe from the Windows NT Resource Kit.
The following information was taken from a Domain Controller namedDomainName. The default groups differ on a Windows NT Workstation orServer installation, and if they are not a member of a domain, then thecomputer name would be considered the authority.
The values below that have a full SID value will differ on allinstallations, but the RID value at the end of the SID is the same acrossall installations.
NOTE: The values in parentheses is the hexadecimal values of the RID.
