I'm using the AfariaNotificationRequest to send an Outbound
Notification to a device. It works perfectly if the device
has connected previously to Afaria, cause it has stored
device's GUID.

The problem appears when that connection has not happened
and the GUID stored in Afaria is not the device one. At this
point, the device answers that the GIUD is not correct, so
the connection fails. What i need is a way to know what the
device GIUD is to change it in Afaria and repeat the
process, but the response of the AfariaNotificationRequest
does not contain it.

any idea?

Cheers!

Rober,

This is working as designed. It sounds like you have the Afaria client
installed on the device, and yet it has not connected to the server itself.
Is this true? Has it connected to another server?

The outbound mechanism checks to make sure that the client that is
responding to the outbound request is actually the client that was intended
to receive the notification. In your example this is not possible as the
client on the device is unknown to the server.

May I ask why you are trying to initiate an outbound connection to a device
not known to the server? Perhaps there is another way to do what you're
trying to do.
