My Hostid is Invalid

If you receive an error message that your HostID number is "invalid", it is because GAUSS requires that you have your ethernet adaptor be enabled. In GAUSS 15 and higher, a network or wireless adaptor will also work.


  1. Enable your ethernet adaptor.

    In Windows, click on this link for instructions on how to enable your ethernet adaptor.

  2. Regenerate your HostID.
