Hardware serial number of virtual disk in hyper-v RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hyper-V on Server 2012 R2

    Is there a way to assign a hardware serial number to a virtual disk in hyper-v.  I have an application that references the hard disk serial number for licensing and it appears the serial number is blank to the operating system (server 2012 R2).

    I am not looking for the volume serial number I need the hardware serial number.

    Get-PhysicalDisk | select uniqueID, serialnumber

    when I run this powershell script in the virtual machine I get a blank serial number.

    In VMware I can enable the serial number by adding 'disk.EnableUUID' to the configuration file.

    thanks
