Issue #2978 has been updated by jalal.


You can run:

  dbus-genuuid > /etc/machine-id 

to get a real machine ID, until it is done automatically. Same case with FreeBSD and OpenBSD btw.


Bug #2978: [dbus] /etc/machine-id does not exist

DragonFly nuc 4.6-RELEASE DragonFly v4.6.1-RELEASE #3: Sun Oct 16 21:13:25 EDT 2016     root at www.shiningsilence.com:/usr/obj/home/justin/release/4_6/sys/X86_64_GENERIC  x86_64

After grabbing dbus from packages, /etc/machine-id is not created. I wasn't able to track down which package/component exactly should be responsible for this file, but dbus won't do anything without it present and filled. It's easy enough to fill it with 32 zeros, but having a "real" id generated automatically would be nice.

The man page for /etc/machine-id isn't very useful either: https://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/machine-id.html
