FS_UUID(1)						       AFS Command Reference							FS_UUID(1)

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. PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
The issuer must be logged on as the local superuser "root". SEE ALSO

APR::UUID - Perl API for manipulating APR UUIDs Synopsis use APR::UUID (); # get a random UUID and format it as a string my $uuid = APR::UUID->new->format; # $uuid = e.g. 'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6'; # same as the object returned by APR::UUID->new my $uuid_parsed = APR::UUID->parse($uuid); Description "APR::UUID" is used to get and manipulate random UUIDs. It allows you to "create" random UUIDs, which when "formatted" returns a string like: 'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6'; which can be parsed back into the "APR::UUID" object with "parse()". API
"APR::UUID" provides the following functions and/or methods: "format" Convert an "APR::UUID object" object into a string presentation: my $uuid_str = $uuid->format; obj: $uuid ( "APR::UUID object" ) ret: $uuid_str returns a string representation of the object (.e.g 'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6'). since: 2.0.00 "new" Create a "APR::UUID object" using the random engine: my $uuid = APR::UUID->new; class: "APR::UUID" ( "APR::UUID class" ) ret: $uuid ( "APR::UUID object" ) since: 2.0.00 "DESTROY" $uuid->DESTROY; obj: "APR::UUID" ( "APR::UUID object" ) ret: no return value since: 2.0.00 Do not call this method, it's designed to be only called by Perl when the variable goes out of scope. If you call it yourself you will get a segfault when perl will call DESTROY on its own. "parse" Convert a UUID string into an "APR::UUID object" object: $uuid = APR::UUID->parse($uuid_str) arg1: $uuid_str (string) UUID string (.e.g 'd48889bb-d11d-b211-8567-ec81968c93c6') ret: $uuid ( "APR::UUID object" ) The new object. since: 2.0.00 See Also mod_perl 2.0 documentation.
