Products that handle their licenses via ELM/PLM no longer have a License MAC, and the MAC from the vNIC has no relationship to licensing. The licenses are tied to the ELM/PLM server.

Hi Jaime

ELM uuid is calculated (partially) using the MAC address of the underneath server. In case of a co-resident server, ELM uses CUCM mac address (VMware assigned MAD address). VMware allocate a dynamic mac address (by default) to each VM. That MAC can change over time (when specific changes are made) and as a result  an ELM uuid will change and  will invalidate all licenses.

That's why I think MAC address on a co-resident CUCM (CUCM+ELM) should be static.


My logic is correct?
