Hi community, 
How are you?

We have moved our ArcGIS Server from a Hyper-V host to a VMWare host doing a V2V copy and after powering on the Server on the new VMWare ESX Host and opening ArcGIS License Server Administrator the license was broken. 
We have kept the same MAC Address for the VM (we can do that in ESX) but it still did not work. The solution was to roll back to Hyper-V.


Can you please help and let us know what needs to be done/checked prior to this migration so licenses are up an running?
