  2. not possible to change the SID on a DC.

    demote it first, remove from domain, change SID with newsid and promote
    again

    remember: changing SID of a machine is only supported by MS with SYSPREP

    Hi

    Remember unlike workstations and member servers, all domain controllers
    within a domain share the same SID (which represents that domain's SID).
