It's a UUID of the instance rather than the server (hostname is probably
sufficient for that). That said there probably isn't a reason you couldn't
set a persistent UUID yourself in a config file.

anyway to configure it to not change?

Currently no. It's generated anew on every start in

It occurs after the switch.conf.xml file is loaded (line 1679) so it would
be trivial to make a patch that reads it from that file and generates a
random one if it hasn't been set in the config file.

It'd be more involved to generate a random one on the first startup that's
then remembered on future startups. That should be possible too by caching
it in a local file, as with freeswitch.serial.
