Funny how you can forget things when you’ve not done them in a while.  I was working on building a virtual child domain, and when I connected one of the servers to the new child domain Symantec starting malfunctioning.  I then remembered I needed to generate a new SID. 

Great tool to use when working in a virtual environment and building networked servers.  If you do not generate a new SID, upon joining the domain your computers will not operate properly.  in WindowsSystem32sysprep, execute sysprep.exe and follow the screenshots below.
