Specify a different virtual machine (VM) identifier.

Setting Value Default
<my_vm_ID> [string] Target VM process ID

To change the VM identifier recorded by an agent, change the value for <my_vm_ID>. The string must start with an alphabetic character. The remaining characters must be alphanumeric or underscore. Case-sensitivity is system dependent. If the VM identifier is already in use, the attach API modifies it to create a unique value.
