"uname -i" on HPVM Guest

Hello,

On a VMGuest (11.23 VMGuest on HPVM 3.5), an application work on this VM, this application bases itself on the "Machine identification number" for the licence (uname -i).

Now, if a create a new VMGuest on a HPVM 4.1 (on an other physical server) with the system disk of the first VMGuest (11.23 VMGuest on HPVM 3.5), the "Machine identification number" (uname -i) is going to change or not ?

If the "Machine identification number" change, the application would not start on the HPVM Guest from the same boot disk.

If the "Machine identification number" change, can i change this numero manually ?

Thanks

Bonjour David,

Try this

Get uuid from source vm on the source host with :

UUID=$(hpvmstatus -P YOURVM -M | cut -d: -f 2)

Then set uuid on the target host with :

/opt/hpvm/bin/hpvmmodify -P YOURVM -x guest_uuid=$UUID

Some more intresting things in /opt/cmcluster/toolkit/hpvm/hpvmsg_package
