MAC address in VC client

Other than starting the guest and jotting down the mac address from the PXE boot screen, we used to get MAC addresses from the MUI, but as the VC client is all now, is there anyway to get get the guest MACs on any of the screens??

Thanks. But I need pretty much non tech people to be able to get the info from VC, and doing SQL to extract it isnt an option.

The MAC used to be in the MUI, and so I was hoping I was being blonde and that its in the VI client I just couldnt find it.

I see what you mean Smiley Wink

As far as i know it is not there by deafult. But it might be possible to get the info in via some SDK if you are familiar with it.

You'll probably need to write your own extensions to the VI Client like was done here to add disk space usage columns to the VI Client...
