    Hi,

    Our software uses this UUID for tiering/licensing. This UUID regeneration after each VM restart makes it painful to support Azure VMs.

    Please fix.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    "Azure Unique VM ID won’t change upon reboot, shutdown (either planned for unplanned), start/stop de-allocate, service healing or restore in place. " does not appear to hold true.

    Upon "get-azurevm -servicename *** -name *** | stop-azurevm" and "get-azurevm -servicename *** -name *** | start-azurevm" the UUID changes.

    Do you know of a concrete way to persist the UUID across various shutdown/restart of VM on Azure? Thanks. -oj
