Examples

The following example demonstrates the Guid and NativeGuid properties of the DirectoryEntry class. This example gets the user-specified DirectoryEntry and displays its Guid and NativeGuid properties.

Dim myADSPath As [String] = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,  
             DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com"  
Dim myDirectoryEntry As New DirectoryEntry(myADSPath)  

' Display the Guid and NativeGuid.  
Console.WriteLine("The GUID of the ADS object:" + myDirectoryEntry.Guid.ToString)  
Console.WriteLine("The Native GUID of the ADS" + "object:" +   
             myDirectoryEntry.NativeGuid)  
String myADSPath = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,  
             DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com";  
DirectoryEntry myDirectoryEntry=new DirectoryEntry(myADSPath);  

// Display the Guid and NativeGuid.  
Console.WriteLine("The GUID of the ADS object:"+  
                  myDirectoryEntry.Guid);  
Console.WriteLine("The Native GUID of the ADS"+  
                  "object:"+myDirectoryEntry.NativeGuid);  
String^ myADSPath = "LDAP://onecity/CN=Users,DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com";  
DirectoryEntry^ myDirectoryEntry = gcnew DirectoryEntry(myADSPath);  

// Display the Guid and NativeGuid.  
Console::WriteLine("The GUID of the ADS object: {0}", myDirectoryEntry->Guid));  
Console::WriteLine("The Native GUID of the ADS object: {0}",  
                   myDirectoryEntry->NativeGuid);  

Remarks

Use the NativeGuid property when binding an object in Active Directory Domain Services.

Note

The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) provider returns the globally unique identifier of a DirectoryEntry in a different format than the Internet Information Services (IIS), Novell NetWare Directory Server (NDS), and WinNT providers.
