       systemd-machine-id-setup - Initialize the machine ID in /etc/machine-id


       systemd-machine-id-setup may be used by system installer tools to initialize the machine
       ID stored in /etc/machine-id at install time with a randomly generated ID. See machine-
       id(5) for more information about this file.

       This tool will execute no operation if /etc/machine-id is already initialized.

       If a valid D-Bus machine ID is already configured for the system, the D-Bus machine ID is
       copied and used to initialize the machine ID in /etc/machine-id.

       If run inside a KVM virtual machine and a UUID is passed via the -uuid option, this UUID
       is used to initialize the machine ID instead of a randomly generated one. The caller must
       ensure that the UUID passed is sufficiently unique and is different for every booted
       instanced of the VM.

       Similarly, if run inside a Linux container environment and a UUID is set for the container
       this is used to initialize the machine ID. For details see the documentation of the
       Container Interface[1].

       The following options are understood:

           Takes a directory path as an argument. All paths will be prefixed with the given
           alternate root path, including config search paths.

       -h, --help
           Print a short help text and exit.

           Print a short version string and exit.

       On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
