Hi Alex,

You have to use VG224's ethernet MAC address that connects to the network.

Only one MAC address exists for the VG224 but Cisco CallManager requires unique MAC addresses for all devices. When only 10 digits of the MAC address are entered, Cisco CallManager can use the MAC address for the gateway and append additional information to it to create the MAC addresses for the VG224 phones.

The conversion of the MAC address for each device occurs by adding the two-digit port number to the end of the MAC address (to the right of the number) and adding VG at the beginning of the MAC address.

Hope to help, if it does please rate the post.

Best regards,
