jtopjian/fqdn_uuid — version 0.0.1 Oct 6th 2012


This is a Puppet fact, and supporting manifest, that will return a UUID based on the machine's fqdn.

I created this fact because I had an issue where all system UUIDs on certain Dell hardware of mine were identical. This broke libvirt migration. I therefore needed to generate UUIDs for each server, but I did not want to deal with the possibility of the UUID changing at random.

How To Use

$ facter -p fqnd_uuid
