Topic: Cannot determine local account sid

Subject: Cannot determine local account sid
Date Posted: 16 Jun 2022 at 10:49am

I am using user profile wizard to migrate an Azure AD domain user profile to on-premises AD account.
I disconnected the Azure AD domain account, and run the wizard. However, the AAD user profile cannot be shown when selecting profile until I checked "Show Unassigned Profiles".
At the same time, the name is not showing a string but the name of the profile.
Anyone can help to advise how can I troubleshoot this case?

Thanks and regards,

Usually, "cannot determine local account SID" means that the account name isn't valid. 

If the profile isn't visible until you select 'show unassigned profiles' this would mean that the profile is not attached to a user account. 

If you continue to have a problem, please email with your migration log and config file please.

Thank you for reply.

During choosing the profile and check option "Show Unassigned Profiles", name still shows "AzureAD\<username>"

After confirm with customer, the log shows info as below:

The issue is fixed finally.
Local admin does not have right to access the user profile folder originally.
After granting the right, SID can be shown correctly, thanks for help!
