I need the uuid of some systems for ipxe booting purposes.. The problem is that these systems are powered off with no OS on them. I could power them on, but it would do me little good since they have no OS installed.
I know that the uuid of a system can be obtained by using the command line.
Is there a way to get the system UUID out of the BMC (using ipmitool mabye)? If so, what is it?
I already have all of the other services setup to take the machine and install everything. I only lack the uuid to identify the machine which needs installing.
NOTE: MAC ADDRESSES ARE NO GOOD FOR THIS PURPOSE! I have way too many nics on these machines and they DO NOT adequately uniquely identify a machine since a machine has multiple mac addresses and there is no way of affirmatively knowing which one to use. Any suggestions to use the mac will be shot down on sight.
