PsGetSid makes reading a computer’s SID easy, and works across the network so that you can query SIDs remotely. PsGetSid also lets you see the SIDs of user accounts and translate a SID into the name that represents it.
Usage: psgetsid [\\computer[,computer[,…] | @file] [-u username [-p password]]] [account|SID]
If you want to see a computer’s SID just pass the computer’s name as a command-line argument. If you want to see a user’s SID, name the account (e.g. "administrator") on the command-line and an optional computer name.
Specify a user name if the account you are running from doesn’t have administrative privileges on the computer you want to query. If you don’t specify a password as an option PsGetSid will prompt you for one so that you can type it in without having it echoed to the display.
