Bare Metal MAC address - VMWare
Posted on 2011-10-24
I am not overly familiar with VMWare setups, but I need some assistance with a client who has one.
Windows 2008 Server running on a basic VMWare setup.
I need to install a licensing program for a specific application that is 'tied in' to the MAC address of the server.
The support for the application said:
"Your virtual machine must use the bare metal MAC address of the network card. I believe that bridging is the method most often used"
I am assuming that is some method of transposing the MAC of the hardware to the VMWare.
Could I get some elaboration on that, and what I will need to do? I basically need to supply them with a MAC address, and then they give me a license file based on it.
