The SID of a computer can be changed via Sysprep. To do this, login to the Windows server. Browse the URL “C\Windows\System32\Sysprep” on Internet Explorer.

Run Sysprep as administrator.

Now choose Enter System Out-of-Box  Experience from the System preparation Tool that opens up, check the box labeled generalize, select Reboot as shut down option. Hit OK.

A brand new SID will be generated by the application.
