cw-uuid - Clockwork UUID Utility
Clockwork is a system configuration management system designed to securely enforce policies on one or more host systems. It can ensure that files have the prescribed attributes (owner, group, permissions, etc.) and content. It can maintain a specific set of installed packages, and even make sure that system user accounts exist.
To keep systems separate across IP conflicts and naming mishaps, Clockwork generates a Universally Unique IDentifier (or UUID, for short) upon installation. This UUID does not change without administrator intervention.
The value of the UUID is more commonly accessed via the sys.uuid fact.
Regenerate the UUID. This should be used with caution, and only by root.
Clockwork was designed and written by James Hunt.
