FS_UUID(1)		     AFS Command Reference		    FS_UUID(1)

NAME
       fs_uuid - Prints	the uuid of the	client or generates a new one

SYNOPSIS
       fs uuid [-generate] [-help]

DESCRIPTION
       fs uuid prints the current UUID of an OpenAFS client.  It can
       optionally force	the generation of a new	UUID, if needed.  The client
       UUID is used by the fileserver to differentiate clients with the	same
       IP address.

CAUTIONS
       The fs uuid command is only available in	OpenAFS	versions after 1.4.5
       and 1.5.8.  The behavior	differs	slightly between versions.  In OpenAFS
       1.4.5 and later,	the -generate option is	required and the UUID for the
       client machine is never printed.	 OpenAFS versions 1.5.8	and later will
       print the UUID.

OPTIONS
       -generate
	   Generates a new UUID	for the	cache manager.	This is	useful if two
	   clients share the same UUID (if systems were	cloned incorrectly,
	   for example).  -generate is optional	in OpenAFS versions 1.5.8 and
	   later, but it is required in	OpenAFS	versions 1.4.5 and later.

       -help
	   Prints the online help for this command.  All other valid options
	   are ignored.

OUTPUT
       fs uuid prints out the current UUID for the client or the new UUID if
       the -generate option is passed to it.

EXAMPLES
       There are only two ways to invoke fs uuid under 1.5.8 and later:

	  % fs uuid
	  UUID:	8ac66f9308a8e-47d7-80f7-50d0040cddc2

	  % fs uuid -generate
	  New UUID: 436bd660-1720-429508e470cff38f5c6fb0

       Here is the only	way to invoke fs uuid under OpenAFS 1.4.5 and later:

	  % fs uuid -generate
	  New uuid generated.
