sidChanger

Hi,

I want to disable sidChanger because of a SID error after an image restore.

I would try to disable it by creating the restoremask.xml file. In
documentation, it's said to add the file to the system drive.

On a UEFI image wich partition is the system drive of the image (excuse my
ignorance) and should I place the file on the root of the drive.

Thanks.

Re: sidChanger

Craig,

I created the restoremask.xml file and copied the file on the root of the
C:\ drive, in the Windows folder and in the System/System32 folders.

I took the image and tried to restore on a second device but still get the
SID error message

Unable to update the SID of the device. Restore the image of the device
again. If the problem persist, disable the SIDchanger.

Any help will be appreciated.

Normand

Re: sidChanger

Were you ever able to resolve the issue? I'm running into a similar issue.

We have done all of our imaging by manually running a bash script, but now are looking at preboot bundles for windows feature updates (as updating from WSUS and via running setup on the iso will not reliably update the OS) and we want to use the same images (which use sysprep).

I've tried creating the RestoreMask.xml file with ziswin.exe on an existing machine and then putting that into the C:\ with an image file. Even with this in place, after the machine comes back up from renaming I can no longer log in with any account. If I boot into the PXE environment, I am unable to mount the ntfs volume as it states that it is not in a clean state. The message mentions that it was hibernated.
