Re: [Xen-devel] Q: How to find own domid or uuid from domU?

Why does your guest need to know its ID?

So that managament tools have a way of associating a running domain
with persistent state such as config files, regardless of where on a
network the domain is running at any time.

If it's only management tools looking to obtain info about other running domains, there's already a dom0_op for querying uuid info.

Is there any reason a domain needs to know its *own* uuid?
