CCA server or manager aren't supported in virtual environments.

How i can remove the invalid license(from command prompt) and install new, i can't access web-interface because of the changed MAC-address.

CCA manager has worked fine on VMWare since year 2006 when we installed it. Problem came when we moved CCA manager from one ESX server to another and MAC-address changed.

You'll have to delve in the database and empty out the license table. This is completely out of realm of support for CCA though, so I can't post an unsupported procedure on NetPro forums.

I can tell you though that the underlying database is postgres, the database name is controlsmartdb, and the table you're looking for is flexlm_licenses; If you do empty out the licenses table, be ready to install all your CAS and CAM licenses on it again.

I would have advised opening a TAC case, but TAC will refuse support to you since you're running your environment on virtual hardware, which is unsupported through and through.
