In oder to get the license for UCM 8.6 business Edition-6K on UCS C200M2,so far i have install the CUCM 8.6 PUB and SUB and i want to install the license for CUCM 8.6 so my question is that which MAC address do i have to use in order to get the license? i.e as there are VM net MAC address and Physical Ethernet MAC address which one do i have to use in order to get the License file
The license MAC is a number auto derived from a SHA function of the installation parameters. It computes IP Address, Mask, Certificate Info, Default GW, Timezone and NTP reference into the license MAC. This is the new MAC used for licensing on vmware infraestructure.
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.
