Account SIDs revisited

Posted by: | January 16, 2013 | No Comment |

I realised there is an easier way to get the data

function get-SID {            
param (            
 [string]$computername = $env:COMPUTERNAME            
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_AccountSID -ComputerName $computername |            
foreach {            
 $exp = "[wmi]'" + $($_.Element) + "'"            
 Invoke-Expression -Command $exp |            
 select Domain, Name, SID, LocalAccount            

Use the wmi type accelerator with the path from the Element and you can just select the data you want.  As a bonus you can discover if the account is local or not
