Guys, can anyone offer a good explanation of the meaning/difference of/between the following as seen from the Windows registry?:
SystemID is the smBIOS GUID, obtainable using ‘wmic path win32_computersystemproduct get uuid’
HostUUID is specific to Client Auto, it is generated based on a number of factors including SystemID, MAC Address(es), Serial number, disk serial number(s). It is used to help identify when a computer has been rebuilt if it is a new machine or a rebuilt one (RAC).
