Cisco UCS Blades ¦ smbiosDump command returns "undefined, but settable"

Hello Community -

I have installed ESXi on a UCS B-Series Blade but have been unable to enumerate the UUID (set via Service Profile) with the smbiosDump ¦ More command.

All other fields return correctly for Serial Number, etc... but not UUID. UUID returns:  "undefined, but settable".    Is this an ESXi and UCS problem?

(NOTE, with ESX classic, dmidecoe ¦ more command enumerates UUID perfectly.)

Thoughts, comments, suggestions, input welcome.

Best all,

This was helpful.... esxcfg-info | grep UUID and is getting further.

Just wondering and researching today if there is a command to actually take it further and set it...or is this done via the Service Profile ¦ Server Details only.

Thanks Chris,
