I have a virtual machine running in hyper-v that I would like to clone a dozen times. I ran sysprep, shutdown and then duplicated the VHD, assigning it to the other servers already setup in Hyper-V.
Before I copied/assigned the VHD to all the servers, I did "test" it by assigning it to one and then booting into windows. I did NOT go through setup, just made sure Windows booted to the choose your language screen.
All VMs are Gen 1 Hyper-V Machines running Windows Server 2012.
Now I'm getting Domain Trust errors and all machines have the same SID.
Did I mess up by booting once after running sysprep, or is the machine's SID assigned after you do the first boot setup?
Follow-up: Just ran sysprep again on each vm as an easy fix.
