Hi Guys,

Today i am going to introduce a new and interesting scenario, where all teh Vmware &  Wintel Administrator feel uncomfortable to work with Cloned Virtual MAchines.

Like  you clone a vm in minutes to test something, but find
that the SID remains the same. A simple utility exists that enables you to
quickly change the SID and the computer name of a cloned virtual machine.
1. The utility is called NewSID v4.10 and is available for download free of charge.
Figure A
2. Next, Run the command prompt and run the auto option (switch A) to create a new SID and rename the computer. It takes a few minutes for the process to complete and the computer to reboot (Figure B). When you log in to the computer again, the SID is brand new and the computer automatically renamed.
With the command newsid.exe /a [newcomputername]
Figure B
 Now Check your computer Information by going to computer properties. Vola.
you did the Change Of your computer name and SID.
