How to set some unique identifier to each Virtual Machine operating system RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have some Virtual machine running with same configuration.  On those VMs I have installed my application.

    I want to set some custom unique identifier in my VM , so that I know that if particular (from my application) request is coming from which VM that request is coming(or that application is running in which VM). As same application is running inside all VM, so to differentiate each request , I want to setup some unique custom identifier at the time of creation of Virtual machine.

    I am using Windows azure Rest API to create and manage Virtual machine on Windows Azure Portal.

  • Hi,

    Each VM has a unique name and a uniquely assigned IP address. Can your app use this information to identify the VM it is running on?
