There is another problem.

I managed to make dmidecode work on openvz container. 

vzctl set $VEID --devnodes mem:r --save
vzctl set $ VEID --capability sys_rawio:on --save

restart the openvz container and dmidecode is working.


The UUID found is the UUID of the host (my proxmox). So, both host and guest have the same UUID.

I think, it will be interesting to make the guest UUID using the host UUID and the VM ID, and to make the VIRTUALMACHINE entry of the host using the same format (UUID + VM ID). 

So that, the UUID will be unique, and we will be able to have several host server with guest having the same VM ID.

It's a strange behavior, UUID may be unique, so not normal.

It's not understand the link between UUID and UID
