It's explain a bit in
Your account, for instance, is a security principal.  The account
with SID S-1-5-21-4015118-2039090470-1726288727-4013 is a foreign
security principal since it's not in your domain.  So far so good, I'm
just not sure what the implications are.  I'm looking at AD from the
hacking side and usually try to steer away from the more complicated
issues of maintainance :}
