SYMPTOMS

Some Netdom commands do not work correctly in localized versions of Windows Server 2008. For example, you cannot enable or disable security identifier (SID) filtering or SID history by using the Netdom command.

CAUSE

Some messages that are displayed at the command prompt are in the local language in a localized version of Windows Server 2008. This issue occurs because the Netdom command options are also recognized as the local language.

RESOLUTION

You can avoid this problem by changing the code page of the command prompt to English. To do this, open the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
Chcp 437
