the system user and ActiveDirectoryGuid RRS feed

  • Question

  • what is the ActiveDirectoryGuid for the SYSTEM user?  (Not it's value, but what it represents.)

    I have 2 environments, dev and prod.  I have, and others many times before me, restored the production database to dev and run the deployment tool on it.  When I look at my systemuser record in either system, I see the same ActiveDirectoryGuid.  When I do the same for SYSTEM, I don't.

    I could understand this if they were completely separate installations.  What I don't get is, after bringing the production database into dev, how the SYSTEM users are different accounts in AD.  Where might that value be squirreled away?

  • A look at the SystemUserBase will show you some relationships between the GUIDS.
