Domain can not join because SID is identical

While setting my new cloud in Hyper-v, I faced issue in joining the domain with error “Domain can not join because SID…… identical”

I needed to create multiple VMs of Server 2012, so I Created Server VM in Hyper-V, and exported it,
and then imported it with New SID

ImportVM

 

Once VM is successfully imported i Tried to Join My Domain and faced this Error

domain_join_error

 

After Some struggle I found that I need to reset the SID of Imported VM, so to do that I need to run “sysprep” and re initialized the VM.

Please make 100% sure that you know what you are doing next, this will initialize  your server and you have to Provide your Product Key again.

Press “window +R” and type following

“%WINDIR%\system32\sysprep”

just to make sure that you are running it from “system32”

sysprep

 

run the sysprep Application

 

sysprep_exe

 

Please Make sure that you have checked the “Generalize” Checkbox

sysprep_runing

 

sysprep_running_final

 

It will reboot the server and Next it will ask for Product Key, and once done .. Join your domain, it worked for me,…
