  • S-1-5-18
  • S-1-5-19
  • S1-5-20
  1. Start by « S » for Security I think.
  2. Second « 1 » for the structure
  3. Next we can read the ID autority value « 5 » for « SECURITY_NT_AUTHORITY »
    1.  » 32″ = sub authority Value « SECURITY_BUILTIN_DOMAIN_RID »

Troubleshooting the issue with Microsoft



You have a temporary random profile problem on one of your servers running Windows 2012R2. Several administrators are logging on and you all have the problem.

To fix it, you delete the .bak profile entry in the registry but the problem comes back after.



Need to resolve the temporary profile problem.

  1. Run the data collection tool by running the .diagcab tool before deleting the registry keys
  2. Install the following commands after logging in normally

netsh trace start capture=yes filemode=circular persistent=yes overwrite=yes maxsize=1024 report=yes tracefile=c:\%computername%_netsh.etl

logman create trace « ds_security » -ow -o c:\%computername%_ds.etl -p « Microsoft-Windows-Winlogon » 0xffffffffffffffff 0xff -nb 16 16 -bs 1024 -mode Circular -f bincirc -max 4096 -ets

logman update trace « ds_security » -p {xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx} 0xffffffffffffffff 0xff -ets

logman update trace « ds_security » -p {xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx} 0xffffffffffffffff 0xff -ets

logman update trace « ds_security » -p {xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx} 0xffffffffffffffff 0xff -ets

logman update trace « ds_security » -p {xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx} 0xffffffffffffffff 0xff -ets

logman update trace « ds_security » -p {xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx} 0xffffffffffffffff 0xff -ets

logman update trace « ds_security » -p {xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx} 0xffffffffffffffff 0xff -ets

As soon as the problem recurs, you stop the traces with the following commands


logman stop « ds_security » -ets

netsh trace stop

The logs are circular and should not occupy much space.
As soon as the problem recurs, run the tool and send it back to me with the files ETL c:\%computername%_ds.etl et c:\%computername%_netsh.etl
