Post uuid not unique
HI support,

I noticed that the UUID for all the IPC3 that we have purchased are all the same set to:

wmic path win32_computersystemproduct get uuid
UUID
03000200-0400-0500-0006-000700080009

I don't think this is correct, and should probably be fixed with a bios update.

these duplicate UUIDs are causing us issues when we try to deploy these machines via SCCM.

is this something that can be corrected?

Many Thanks
Fil.

Hi Fil,

Did the IPC3 came with stock OS or built with custom OS provided by your organization?

Regards,
Tamir.

(we have more units, from the same order, but they are still in the boxes, so cannot get the serials at this moment)

One of my colleagues tried it on 2 other machines .... (which were just taken out of the box)

in the PXE logs on the server I can see them being identified with the same incorrect UUID this is before our image is being dropped on these pc's.
Proving the image is not at fault....

00:01:C0:1E:8D:4F, 03000200-0400-0500-0006-000700080009
(serial: 1170608-05935)

00:01:C0:1E:8D:28, 03000200-0400-0500-0006-000700080009
(serial: 1170608-05940)

both were upgraded to the latest bios that was mentioned on the website as well before we attempted the PXE booting.
(bios version: IPC3K.PRD.0.25.04)


Thanks
Fil

Hello Fil,
The BIOS update has caused UUID reset.
Please don't upgrade other IPC3 units to IPC3K.025.04 before we will find solution for this issue.

I've checked a few more units now that I am back in the office.
They all have this version of the bios installed already.

Can we downgrade the bios or when will an updated/fixed version will be available?

Thanks
Fil.
