Information

EID is the Environment ID used by the PVA Agent to identify a container or a virtual machine. This EID must be unique for all containers and virtual machines in a Parallels Virtual Automation (PVA) managed infrastructure.

This article describes how to regenerate the EID for a container.

Resolution

On Linux:

  1. Find the container EID:

    ~# cat /vz/private/CTID/.vza/eid.conf
    
  2. Remove the EID cache file:

    ~# rm /var/opt/pva/agent/etc/configs/EID
    
  3. Use the uuidgen utility to obtain a unique EID:

    ~# uuidgen | tee /vz/private/CTID/.vza/eid.conf
    5187b2c8-a3a1-42f6-8d23-343effde0d10
    

    NOTE: Replace CTID with the actual container ID.

  4. Restart the PVA Agent to apply these changes:

    ~# pvaagent restart
    

On Windows

  1. Find the container EID:

    type C:\vz\private\CTID\.vza\eid.conf
    
  2. Remove the EID cache file:

    del C:\vz\PVA\Agent\Data\etc\configs\EID
    
  3. Stop the PVA Agent:

    sc stop pvaagent
    
  4. Use the newvpsid utility to obtain a unique EID:

    newvpsid > C:\vz\private\CTID\.vza\eid.conf
    

    NOTE: Replace CTID with the actual container ID.

  5. Start PVA Agent

    sc start pvaagent
