VMware Mac Address Changes Reject /Accept

VMware Mac Address Changes Reject /Accept

In Vmware vSwitch settings there is an option about Mac address Change , either set to Reject or Accept .

- I would like to know if there is a way to change the burned -in Mac address.
- I would like to know if there is a way to add new Mac address in VMX file for non-existing Network adapter
- If I add new Network Adapter while the Change Mac Address is set to Reject, will this stop traffic going out of that new New Network Adapter ?

Thank you

ALL MAC Addresses on anything can be changed, it's called MAC Spoofing, and is very common, and easy to do in Linux!
