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
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.
