Hello,
Proxmox 5.3.8 cluster. i have created a vm and imported a backup from a vmware vm. A license software (from Honeywell) doesn't work because requires BIOS ID. From windows command prompt:
Code:
wmic bios get serialnumber
get no answer.
the vm config file reports a smbios1: uuid= etc. etc.
There is a solution?

Hi,

If you what the serial you have to set it.
See option tab SMBios setting
UUID != serial
