Guid Uniqueness On different machine


Possible Duplicate:

Is a GUID unique 100% of the time?




After reading all posts on Guid, still I am unclear about one simple thing:

Guids generated by different machines also maintain their Uniqueness or not.

I have read about guid uniqueness on single machine,but I still don't know about uniqueness with different machines

Answer

GUID are "practically" universally unique.

A GUID is a 128-bit integer (16 bytes) that can be used across all computers and networks wherever a unique identifier is required. Such an identifier has a very low probability of being duplicated.
