We improved our sensor provisioning mechanism. After you configure a new sensor, the generation is much quicker. Once the sensor is run for the first time, you will assign a particular sensor configuration to it. This also allows you to instantly migrate sensors from one hardware box to another without having to copy software around. If you want to assign a new sensor to a particular machine, you set the UUID to 0 and restart; during the restart, you can pick your new sensor configuration among the configurations you have created. Please remember to only have one active configuration running at time otherwise many things will not work.
