[KBA-01016] Incorrect GUIDs are returned by the Omnicast™ SDK

This article explains why GUIDs that are not listed in Config Tool are returned by the Omnicast™ SDK.

Symptoms

In the Omnicast™ SDK, when searching through a unit's list of attached entities using the GetChildrenList method, some GUIDs are listed but appear to be invalid. When retrieving the entities represented by these GUIDs, accessing their properties generates an error. Also, these GUIDs do not appear in Config Tool.

Cause

The GetChildrenList function returns GUIDs of entities that should not be available through the SDK.

Workaround

None.

Status

A hot fix is available for Omnicast™ 4.6 SR1 (HF1164). Contact the Genetec™ Technical Assistance Center to obtain it.

This issue is fixed in Omnicast™ 4.8 SR2.
