sys_ident - generate unique identification numbers
utility implements algorithms for generating identification
numbers that are uniqe to each system. These numbers are generated with the
same algorithm as the numbers generated by uname -f
When invoked with the -s
option, a 64-bit identification number will be
printed (as a 16-character hexadecimal number). The number will also be unique
for each partition on a partitioned system.
When invoked with the -p
option, a 32-bit processor serial number will be
printed (as an 8-character hexadecimal number).
- Generate a unique system/partition identification 64-bit
- Generate the processor serial number
