Thanks in advance!  All replies rated.

Hi Angel,

I just wanted to add this reference to the great tips from Anand (+5 )

With VMware the license is created in a new/different manner that's why you are

seeing this new "license mac" reference;

Customer Impact from New Licensing Procedures

#

Cisco  Unified Communications Manager on VMware on Cisco UCS B-Series Blade  Servers uses a different licensing model than Cisco Unified  Communications Manager on an MCS server. The MAC address of the NIC card  is no longer used to associate the license to the server.

#

Instead,  the license gets associated to a license MAC, which is a 12 digit HEX  value created by hashing the following parameters that you configure on  the server:

#

Time zone

#

NTP server 1 (or "none")

#

NIC speed (or "auto")

#

Hostname

#

IP Address (or "dhcp")

#

IP Mask (or "dhcp")

#

Gateway Address (or "dhcp")

#

Primary DNS (or "dhcp")

#

SMTP server (or "none")

#

Certificate Information (Organization, Unit, Location, State, Country)

This hash of these fields is called the LICENSE MAC

Note : Once there is a change in any of the parameters that creates the License MAC, it will

give you 30 day grace period to generate a new license file for the CM based on new license

MAC.
