Property Value

A GUID that identifies the client database.

The ID of the client that is currently synchronizing is typically used for conflict detection and to prevent echoing of changes back to the client during bidirectional synchronization. For more information, see How to: Exchange Bidirectional Incremental Data Changes Between a Client and Server.

By default, Synchronization Services identifies each client with a GUID, which is returned by the ClientId property. You can also map the GUID to an integer and use the value that is returned by the OriginatorId property. For more information, see How to: Use Session Variables.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
