unable to figure out UUID



  • my base system has a UUID in dmidecode, but i guess the error below comes from an individual component.

    which DMI fields are being looked at to produce the below message. Thanks again

    php-cgi: rc.bootup: Creating rrd update script
    /etc/rc.d/hostid: WARNING: hostid: unable to figure out a UUID from DMI data, generating a new one
    kernel: done.

    i tried grep on the pfsense source code and get no hits for "unable to figure out a UUID from DMI data" or any shortened form...I want to find the source code generating the message, to see which DMI fields are required to be populated



  • @gwaitsi to get rid of this message if you are using a cheap chinese no brand box,
    i set the following DMI values using the codes are for AMI BIOS with AMIDEDOS.EXE

    In AMIBIOS the fields are for System, Baseboard (Planar in freebsd), Chassis.
