How to find the hardware id (hwid) on a server for Virtouzzo license

Parallels the vendor of Virtualization platform Virtouzzo use a hardware id to maintain and associate the Virtouzzo licenses. You will need this hardware id ( hwid ), when you install a license on new server/node or when you upgrade the license on an existing node for any reason, e.g. increasing the license from 20 vps support to 30 vps support or if you change the network card on the server.

This hardware id is located at /proc/vz/hwid and you can get the info using below command :

# cat /proc/vz/hwid


In some cases it may report multiple ids, you should use the first one in that case.
