SID (Security ID)

UJ
My network engineer has said there is a system SID that you can get that is
unique to each computer on a network. Does anybody know where this is stored
or how to get it? I looked through regedit and there are lots and lots of
SID so I don't know which one is the correct one.

What's I'm looking for is a unique identifier for each machine that the user
can't/shouldn't change. I don't want to use the machine name because if
people are on the same network but different domains, they in theory could
have the same computer name.

TIA - Jeff.

Maybe you want to try the windows xp forums. This don't appear to be a
C# language issue.

It's the objectSID attribute of the computer account and it's stored in the
AD.

Pardon my ignorance. What's the AD?

AD = Active Directory, this is the LDAP Directory Service running on a W2K
or W2K3 Domain Controller.

I'm sorry but, there is no such thing like a Machine SID for standalone
members, machine SID's are generated when a machine joins a domain and they
are stored in the DC.

S**t for brains strikes again! Why did I do that? When I met the clients and at some point they vaguely asked whether eventually would it be possible to have some people who could read the data and some who couldn't but that it wasn't important right now. And I said, 'sure, we can do that later'. So now I've developed an app without any thought to security and am trying to apply it afterwards. Doh!, doh! and triple doh!
