Hello,

I'm trying to establish in a script whether the VM runs on top of Proxmox KVM.
I'm looking at /sys/devices/virtual/dmi/id/product_uuid to be more specific. Will that value be always Proxmox specific and how can I determine that?

Regards,
Lucian
 
/sys/devices/virtual/dmi/id/product_uuid is set to what the config contains as uuid for smbios

e.g. having

Code:
smbios1: uuid=00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
results in that value showing up in /sys/devices/...
 
Yes, my question is, does Proxmox set this to anything in particular (like EC2 does[1]) or just leaves the KVM defaults on?
no this is a normal uuid, so no proxmox specific information encoded
