NAME¶sys_ident - generate unique identification numbers
/usr/sbin/sys_ident -s /usr/sbin/sys_ident -p
DESCRIPTION¶The sys_ident 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 on AIX.
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 number
- Generate the processor serial number
