Best tool to change MAC address on Windows 2008 server
« on: May 09, 2012, 12:12:00 AM »
We need to change MAC address on Windows 2008 server  to match old server for Genesys license utilization.

What will be the best tool to use?
(e.g. “MACMAKER” utility or  edit registry..)


Thanks,

Changing the MAC address on a Windows PC can be done easy enough, but you will normally find that it is restored after a reboot so not really a practical solution in this scenario. Especially, if you're not running HA, if the server reboots for whatever reason of an support engineer does it out of hours you could end up with no licenses.  :(
