6. Clone MAC address(es):
To assign the same, unique MAC address to any virtual machine manually, use a text editor to remove three lines from the configuration file and add one line. The configuration file has a .vmx extension at the end of the filename. On a Linux host, a virtual machine created with an earlier VMware product may have a configuration file with a .cfg extension.
Open the virtual machine’s .vmx configuration file with a text editor. For more information about editing a virtual machine’s configuration file (.vmx), see Tips for editing a .vmx file (http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=1714)
Remove the three lines from the configuration file that begin with:ethernetN.generatedAddressethernetN.addressTypeethernetN.generatedAddressOffset
Add a new static MAC address line to the configuration file with help of the following entries:ethernetN.address = “00:50:56:XX:YY:ZZ”ethernetN.addressType = “static”
Save the configuration file.
