    Properties Description
    AccountType A flag that describes the characteristics of the user account.
    • 256 = (UF_TEMP_DUPLICATE_ACCOUNT) Local user account for users who have a primary account in another domain. This account provides user access to this domain only—not to any domain that trusts this domain.
    • 512 = (UF_NORMAL_ACCOUNT) Default account type that represents a typical user.
    • 2048 = (UF_INTERDOMAIN_TRUST_ACCOUNT) Account for a system domain that trusts other domains.
    • 4096 = (UF_WORKSTATION_TRUST_ACCOUNT) Computer account for a computer system running Windows that is a member of this domain.
    • 8192 = (UF_SERVER_TRUST_ACCOUNT) Account for a system backup domain controller that is a member of this domain.
    Description Description of the account if available.
    Disabled True or False if the user account is currently disabled.
    Domain Name of the Windows domain (ex: computer name) the user account belongs.
    FullName Full name of the local user account.
    InstallDate Date the object is installed if available. This property does not need a value to indicate that the object is installed.
    LocalAccount True or False if the user account is defined on the local computer.
    Lockout True or False if the user account is currently locked out of Windows.
    Name Name of the user account. This would be the same name as the "C:\Users\(user-name)" profile folder of the user account.
    PasswordChangeable True or False if the password of the user account can be changed.
    PasswordExpires True or False if the password of the user account expires.
    PasswordRequired True or False if a password is required for the user account.
    SID Security identifier (SID) for this account. A SID is a string value of variable length that is used to identify a trustee. Each account has a unique SID that an authority, such as a Windows domain, issues. The SID is stored in the security database. When a user logs on, the system retrieves the user SID from the database, places the SID in the user access token, and then uses the SID in the user access token to identify the user in all subsequent interactions with Windows security. Each SID is a unique identifier for a user or group, and a different user or group cannot have the same SID.
    SIDType Enumerated value that specifies the type of SID.
    • 1 = User
    • 2 = Group
    • 3 = Domain
    • 4 = Alias
    • 5 = Well Known group
    • 6 = Deleted account
    • 7 = Invalid
    • 8 = Unknown
    • 9 = Computer
    Status Current status of an object. Various operational and nonoperational statuses can be defined.

    Operational statuses include: "OK", "Degraded", and "Pred Fail", which is an element such as a SMART-enabled hard disk drive that may be functioning properly, but predicts a failure in the near future.

    Nonoperational statuses include: "Error", "Starting", "Stopping", and "Service", which can apply during mirror resilvering of a disk, reloading a user permissions list, or other administrative work.

    The values are:
    • OK
    • Error
    • Degraded
    • Unknown
    • Pred Fail
    • Starting
    • Stopping
    • Service
    • Stressed
    • NonRecover
    • No Contact
    • Lost Comm




    That's it,
    Shawn

    Hi there,
    thank you for this trick
    Is it possible to get the User SID of a particular user thanks to a .bat script for instance ?

    I'm new in scripting and I try to automate many things. In my case, I would like to access directly to the good Registry Key but it depends on the SID..!

    Thank you so much for all your tutorials ! \o/

    Hello Govi, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You could use the command below to get the SID of the current user.

    wmic useraccount where name='%username%' get sid

    You could use the command below to get the SID of a specific user. Replace username in the command below with the actual user name of the user.

    wmic useraccount where name='username' get sid


    You could use the command below to get the Name and SID of all users.

    wmic useraccount get name, sid

    My command prompt initializes with x: and when I input wmic as mentioned above I get "No Instance(s) Available." Is there another way to see what User accounts I may have on my laptop?
