How To: Reinstall Virtual Appliance and retain licensing etc
« on: February 14, 2016, 10:52:26 PM »
Somebody might find this useful.

If you have a virtual appliance like a VX9000 or even a ADSP VM the licensing is tied to the MAC address or Serial Number.

If you ever need to rebuild your VM it could come up with a new MAC and Serial Number and your config and license could be lost.

This method will preserve the MAC and Serial Number of the VM.

1. Delete current hard disk from the VM
2. Add new virtual hard disk
3. Connect ISO file as virtual CD
4. Boot into CD to start install
5. After installation is complete, restore configuration.
