5/9/2019 11:21:23 PM Error Failed to perform failover to replica Error: Impermissible VPX-assigned Ethernet address: '00:0c:29:d2:f9:0f'.
pretty straight fwd, the VM doesnt have the valid vmware mac. but why? i fixed this by adding the parameter - ethernet0.checkMACAddress=false
all other replicas (same job) have valid macs and i can power them on just fine.
the only thing different btw this VM and the rest is i failed over to the affected VM and failed back to production just a few weeks ago, worked fine. no other replicas were failed over.
this vm has been in production for years and was added via vcenter as the rest of VMs were - plus the failover worked just a few weeks ago. they only difference i can see is the failover/failback i did on this VM.
i tried to open a case - but got this error - Only License and designated Case Administrators can open support cases. Please contact your license administrator to change the permissions.
ive opened cases in the past, so we will have to sort that out.
