I was wondering how to get FM's Persistent ID from a computer without using FileMaker. First of all, I'm not even sure a FM Persistent ID exists if you haven't installed FM. But I was trying to see if there was some terminal command that would return the ID outside of FM itself. In particularly I'm wanting to do this on a PC or Mac. Help Desk person can type in this command to document it in a database to authorize equipment connecting to the FileMaker solution.
PS: For example like getting the UUID of a Mac with this command:
ioreg -rd1 -c IOPlatformExpertDevice | grep -E '(UUID)'
