How to overcome vCenter Server unique ID limitation?

Now vCenter 5.5 and 6.0 we can assign unique ID between 0-63. I think this is because of MAC address limitation.

In our QA environment, we need to deploy multiple vCenter Servers. But because of this (0-63) limitation we can deploy only 64 vCenter Servers in one VLAN.

I would like to know, is there any way or workaround to deploy more than 64 vCenter Servers in single VLAN?

Hi,
Look at the document where the maximum specified vSphere 6.0  https://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere6/r60/vsphere-60-configuration-maximums.pdfhttps://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere6/r60/vsphere-60-configuration-maximums.pdf 

The maximum for MAC limitation per VC is this:

MAC addresses per vCenter Server (using default VMwareOUI) 65,536

Thanks for reply.

From your given URLs I come to know maximum limit. But I would like to know, how can I overcome this limitation? Because I want to deploy more than 64 vCenter Server VMs on single VLAN.
