Identifying the Globally Uniqueby in CodeSOD on 2017-04-24
UUIDs, aka GUIDs are, well… unique. Unique identifiers. It’s right there in the name.
Active Directory needs to identify things. Thus, it uses GUIDs. “Omni’s” co-worker got this far, but then ran into a problem. If you print a GUID from AD, it looks like this: “35918bc9196d40ea9779889d79b753f0”, but if you print it from C#, it looks like this: “35918bc9–196d–40ea–9779–889d79b753f0”. Whatever is a programmer to do when dealing with these radically incompotible formats?
