  2. Hi,

    If you enter multiple users and the RID Master is not running, the DC
    might run out of SIDs and therefor not able to create new security
    objects. The RID Master assigns a range of SIDs for every DC, when the
    DC is running out of SIDs he is begging the RID-Master for another round
    of SIDs. (simplified)

    Gruesse - Sincerely,
