Greg, do you know?
I haven't heard of any that don't support reading uuid from smbios. I
have heard (I think from David L.) that gogrid doesn't set a guest ID
for launching guests...in that case, deltacloud generates the ID and
hands it back to conductor. Don't know if this ID makes it into the
guest, or if it shows up in smbios.
