Error: Two Machines with the same SystemID

Ventuz is generating a SystemID for every Machine Ventuz is installed on. Those SystemID's have to be unique across the Network especially when it comes to remote configuration and cluster synchronization.
Unfortunately it isn't when your are working with cloned windows images.
To solve the issue you have to apply a Registry Key with a unique SystemID for each Machine manually.

Simply copy the following text into a file, change the SystemID and save it as a .reg file. Double click the file to add the regKey to the System.

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Ventuz Technology\Ventuz]

is the SystemID generated by Ventuz based on Product's ID from WINDOWS 10 system Information?

if so , you have to generated this SystemID from machine's ID from WINDOWS 10 system Information;

because if you buy severals machines of the same type, they have the same product's ID.

and you willl get the same SystemID Error in the Ventuz configuration editor.

I already try to change manualy the registry Key with a SystemID like you say.
It is not working ? i get the same message in the Ventuz configuation editor.

What can I do ?
