      So I am about to migrate bunch of servers to from old vcenter to new. I will clone those servers and after mounting old lun to new esxi hosts on new vCenter I am gonna select 'I have moved this vm' for migrated cloned VMs. Since the new MAC will already generated on existing vCenter where I will do cloing...My question is.

       

      Do I need to change MAC address to existing one (generated on cloned VMX on old vcenter) before registering on new vCenter ? I am going to check with application vendor if application is MAC aware. along side this I also want to check that is it mandatory to change it existing one for OS network connectivity or the new assigned MAC will work !
