How to manually get the domain SID when the script does not prompt for the password of the administrator user if it is unable to resolve without a password.
adinfo -y domain (to get domain map info)
net setdomainsid <copy the SID from domain map info from step above>
net getdomainsid (to verify if the domainsid was set correctly)
Make sure tdb-tools is enabled if not please run yam install tdb-tools to have it enabled. After it’s being enabled, please run the following command.
tdbdump  /var/lib/samba/private/secrets.tdb
It will generate the file and shows as the following output: (Should be able to a pair SID one from Domain and one from Host)
data(68) = "\01\04\00\00\00\00\00\05\15\00\00\00{\E2-C\18!\F3\BEP\E8\84\A8\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00\00"
