The bug is #371674 (provide friendlymachinenames); but this is more of a question that needs documenting---how to be able to check on each of those machines what *their* ID is.

I've linked this question to the bug report Paul mentioned.

As a work around, you can discover the authentication token your machine is using with the following steps:
 * From the Applications -> Accessories menu, open "Passwords and Encryption Keys"
 * Switch to the passwords tab.
 * Click the expander in the list to reveal the stored passwords.
 * Right click on "UbuntuOne token for" and pick properties.
 * Click the "Password" expander, then on the "Show password" checkbox. You will be prompted to grant access to the password here: click "Allow Once".
 * The stored password will be of the form "oauth_secret_token=XXXX&oauth_token=YYYY". "YYYY" is the ID associated with your computer.
