    Unique Guest ID for software licensing?

    netlib Hot Shot

      I don't know if this is the right group for this question, but I have to think that I am not the only one with this concern:

       

      Lets say my software is licensed to a specific machine's hardware profile. Now lets say the customer clones the VM my software  is installed on. Is there any way for my software to detect that the VM has been cloned?  E.g., is there any unique, unchangeable ID associated with the guest?  I was thinking of using the Bios Serial Number, but that can be changed in the VMX file.

       

      Thanks for any suggestions.
