Host ID/Hardware ID keeps changing after shutting down servers


Host ID or Hardware ID keeps changing after servers are shut down on AWS instance. Mac Address and Private IP are not changed in the process.



The Host ID or Hardware ID is based on hardware-specific information and can change depending on the hardware changes that are made to a particular machine. With Virtual instances, changes tend to be more variable due to how virtual instances work. For more information on this issue, please review this article.


If the change in Host ID/Hardware ID causes the license to expire, it is possible to request an emergency license by following these steps.
