Hello everyone, is there any table in osquery returning a unique and persistent ID for the device osquery is running on? The UUID in system_info is unique but after a reboot it changes in my VM.

Hi Adrian - I think you have the right idea of using UUID in system_info - depending on the VM software being used, I believe there's a configuration file or option in VMWare/Virtualbox that lets you configure a persistent UUID.

I think this is probably not osquery… But instead a question of how one uniquely and persistently identifies a VM.

Alright thank you both. The mac addresses from the interface_details table seem to be unique and persistent also for VMs, is that true?

That is a question for your VM systems, I do not know the answer.
