Without having access to what? Select db_name/instance_name/db_unique_name
from the relevant views all work if you have the relevant db permissions.
The Database sid is found at the end of the windows service name and in the
registry both of which are remotely queryable via PowerShell if you have
the relevant o/s permissions.
