Virtual Connect MAC address manual assignment

Mohammed was looking for some assistance:





I was wondering if there is a way to manually assign the virtual MAC addresses and WWN within a profile ?


i.e. instead of having the automatically assigned virtual MAC address of xxxxxxx20, changing it to xxxxxxx80, and the same for the WWN..


I would appreciate any kind of help on this.

Yes you can, with the VCM CLI. Example from the CLI user guide (http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02514404/c02514404.pdf):


->add enet-connection MyNewProfile

AddressType=User-Defined EthernetMAC=00-17-A4-77-

00-00 iScsiMAC=00-17-A4-77-00-01

Adds a new Ethernet network connection and provides user-defined

MAC addresses
