|-generate||Generates a new UUID for the cache manager. This is useful if two clients share the same UUID (if systems were cloned incorrectly, for example). -generate is optional in OpenAFS versions 1.5.8 and later, but it is required in OpenAFS versions 1.4.5 and later.|
|-help||Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.|
fs uuid prints out the current UUID for the client or the new UUID if the -generate option is passed to it.
There are only two ways to invoke fs uuid under 1.5.8 and later:
% fs uuid UUID: 8ac66f9308a8e-47d7-80f7-50d0040cddc2 % fs uuid -generate New UUID: 436bd660-1720-429508e470cff38f5c6fb0
Here is the only way to invoke fs uuid under OpenAFS 1.4.5 and later:
% fs uuid -generate New uuid generated.
The issuer must be logged on as the local superuser root.
