    Hello,

    Our organization is preparing to deploy our 2nd MINIX NEO z83-4. This device needs to be able to join an Active Directory domain. We're finding that both of our MINIX systems share the same UUID, causing a situation where 2 computers (MINIXs) share a single computer object in Active Directory. This is obviously a bad thing.

    We've seen this issue in the past with smaller PC manufactures, and we can usually fix this issue by randomizing the UUID by running the AMIDEDOS tool. Unfortunately, because the MINIX uses UEFI instead of legacy BIOS, we can not boot MS-DOS and thus can not run the 16bit AMIDEDOS tool to generate a new UUID.

    Do you guys have any sort of tool or method to remedy this issue? We really love the product, but being unable to manage it with Active Directory is going to be an issue.
