Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Machine address.

I need to generate a machine address/ID like 080009d456x7 can anyone tell me how to do it?!

I thought it was a uname flag option but I can't find it?

Thanks in advance.
Russ.

Re: Machine address.

If you are looking at the mac address(48bit)on the system network card(hostid)
then you can do a

#/usr/sbin/lanscan | grep 0x | cut -c12-23


Thanks
