I am trying to configure the serial number for a High Sierra VM. I have edited the vmx file to add the entry
serial = myserialnumb
without quotes around the serial number and saved it. When I start the VM and look at About This Mac the serial number still shows up as the one that was originally configured for the VM. Is there additional steps to update the Serial number on a MacOS VM?
for a Mac-VM:
you can easily add 2 lines in the vmx file:
serialNumber = "C02XXXXXX153"
hw.model = "MacBookPro15,1"
but how does it work for a VM with Windows 10? I found a solution that says:
SMBIOS.use12CharSerialNumber = "TRUE"
serialNumber = "myserialnumb"
But this won't work for me?!?! Any ideas
