UUIDs are used for both machine specific IDs and for IDS that are
common to all computers. In this case the above ID is the 'pipe' UUID
of the DRSUAPI pipe. If you look in librpc/idl/drsuapi.idl then you'll
see a line like this:

which says that this pipe is identified by that UUID.

If you see a UUID and wonder if it might be a fixed uuid like this,
then try "git grep" to find it in the Samba source code. For example:

  git grep -i -n e3514235-4b06-11d1-ab04-00c04fc2dcd2

run that in the top level directory and it will show you any cases
where that UUID is embedded in the Samba source code. 

You could also put it into a Google search.

Cheers, Tridge
