Can someone please tell me how the 1000V gets its serial number?  I have a few I need to register the license PAK and they all seem to have the same serial number.  I posted this in two areas, not sure where 1KV questions need to go...

  • Cisco Employee,

Looks like the host id is your serial number according to the following url:

Obtaining a Permanent  License File

Here is an example:

show license host-id

n1000v# show license host-id
License hostid: VDH=1280389551234985805

I hope this is what  you are looking for.

To follow on to this - What serial nubmer do you use to open a TAC case on the N1Kv? Cisco has been less than straight forward with

trying to identify what serial number or other identifier to use.
