Serial Number and CPU ID Format for the VM-Series Firewall
When you launch an instance of the VM-Series firewall,
each instance of the firewall is uniquely identified using the CPU
ID and serial number of the firewall. The format of the CPU ID and
the serial number include information on the hypervisor and the license
type for each instance of the VM-Series firewall.
With the BYOL model, you must Register
the VM-Series Firewall (with auth code) on the Customer Support
portal (CSP). For a firewall with direct internet access, you can
apply the auth code on the firewall to generate a license file that includes
the serial number. For a firewall that is offline, you must use
the CSP to input the CPU ID, UUID, and the auth code to generate
a license file that includes the serial number and install the license
on the firewall.
