Using VM_UUID on FEATURE/INCREMENT Lines

Using VM_UUID on FEATURE/INCREMENT Lines

Question:

Is it possible to specify a VM_UUID on a FEATURE/INCREMENT line in a license file?

Answer:

Unfortunately it is not currently possible to specify a VM_UUID on a FEATURE/INCREMENT line in a license file.

This is stated on page 17 of the "Understanding Virtualization Features in FlexNet Publisher" White Paper (see PDF attached):

"VM_UUID is not currently supported as a HostID on the INCREMENT line. However, one can call lc_hostid(lm_job,VM_UUID, buf) from the client, which means producers can use VM_UUID indirectly as a VDH (vendor defined hostid).
 
Alternatively, the ETHER HostID is the most flexible for clients on virtual environments."
