After installing a new VMXNET3 network card my HP MAC based license server didn’t function anymore. To change the MAC address in the VMX file I used a very nice tool, called: Virtual MAC Tool created by Richard Garsthagen.
– Turn off your VM;
– Open Virtual MAC Tool;
– Connect your ESX host or VC;
– Select the VM and vNIC/Network you want to change the MAC address
– In my case MAC: 00:0C:29:46:CF:1E and click “Set”
After clicking “Set” you see current MAC status and status Reconfigure VM Tasks Completed Successfully. My license server is working again.
Awesome tool! 🙂
