Obtaining an Internet HOST ID

Use lmhostid to obtain your machine's Internet Host ID. The Internet Host ID is normally the primary IP address of the primary network interface in the system. Internet Host IDs can be used as an alternative to Ethernet (or MAC) Host IDs and may be preferable in virtual environments where MAC addresses can change due to VM cloning.

  1. Type the following command:

/opt/LifeKeeper/bin/lmhostid -internet -n

  1. Record the ID returned by the program.


# /opt/LifeKeeper/bin/lmhostid -internet -n
