MAC Address

What implications are there (if any), if in a VMs VMX file, you change:

ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:50:XX:XX:XX:XX"

ethernet0.addressType = "vpx"toethernet0.addressType = "static"ethernet0.address="00:50:XX:XX:XX:XX" Yet leave the Network Adapter MAC address setting to Automatic (via VC server). We have had issues with MAC address changes on Linux VMs, causing network and license issues.

For some reason the formatting has gone screwy.

What implications are there (if any), if in a VMs VMX file, you change:

ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:50:XX:XX:XX:XX"

ethernet0.addressType = "vpx"

to

ethernet0.addressType =

"static"

ethernet0.address="00:50:XX:XX:XX:XX"

Yet leave the Network

Adapter MAC address setting to Automatic (via VC server).

issues with MAC address changes on Linux VMs, causing network and

license issues. Matt
