SUMMARYA machine's system ID is a unique code required to license products from The Foundry. Please note that refunds cannot be given for licenses issued for an incorrect system ID, so please download a tool (below) to report the correct system ID.
MORE INFORMATIONSystem ID for trial or node-locked licenses
For trial and node-locked licenses, you need to find the System ID of the machine that will use the software.
System ID for floating and render licenses
Floating licenses are managed by a machine on your network acting as a license server. When buying a floating license, you need to enter the System ID of this license server.
Finding the System ID
- Download the Foundry License Utility (FLU) to find your system ID:
- Mac and Windows users: Run the FLU. The System ID will be displayed at the bottom of the window.
- Linux users: run the following command in the directory where you downloaded the FLU to print out the System ID: ./FoundryLicenseUtility –i
- If the System ID is of the form Raaaaaaaaaaaa:Xbbbbbbbbbbbb, please see Q100008: What do I do if the FLU returns two system IDs?
