Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager (VCEM) question

Matt had a customer question on Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager (VCEM):

 

***************

 

Have a customer that has 6 datacenters and they deployed 6 VCEM managers (one in each).  Without major surgery (key word major), is there any way in which they can bring this under one umbrella or at least ensure that each server uses a unique set of WWID and Mac addresses?  Open to creative ideas.  Thank you!

Vincent had some answers:

If they didn’t use exclusion ranges in their various VCEM instances, it’s likely they’ve got duplicate MACs and WWNs, so they will have to re-create some profiles. They could create VCEM exclusion ranges now, different ones on each, and recreate profiles, or they could re-create profiles in only one VCEM instance if the ultimate goal is to consolidate all 6 into 1.
