View Full Version : What Partition Does HOSTID_DISK_ SERIAL_NUM Select?

When using HOSTID_DISK_SERIAL_NUM...from what partition does FLEXnet Publisher pick the disk serial number from? Is it the active partition...or something else?

I'm asking because on my disk I have several primary partitions...but I only boot into one. When I install the application...no matter on what partition...it always picks the same disk serial number.

I'm assuming that it always grabs the disk serial number from the active partition.

I think the value comes from the first hard drive/fixed drive; the license administrator's guide mentions running dir C: and removing the hyphen from the serial number, but I expect it checks D:, etc., if there's no C: drive.
