Host ID for Linux

If you are on an linux machine, you can obtain hte Host ID by issuing the following command at the prompt:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0
Look for the return value that begins with "HWaddr",
for example: HWaddr 00:50:2C:05:0D:26
The Host ID is your ethernet address, without colons: "00502C050D26"

Note: Host ID is better known as MAC-address.

I take my word back, you can use hostid command, it parses the mac-address so it must be used for the license.  

MAC-address isnt changed easily on the server, easier is to change network interface card.

Makes me wonder you should change your hostid to something else, license issues?
