Sometimes you want to hava a NIC in a VMware VM to have a static MAC address in stead of a dynamically generated one.
This sanbarrow.com page explains what to change in the VMX configuration file.
ethernet0.addressType = “generated”
ethernet0.generatedAddress = “00:0c:29:40:7e:22”
ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = “0”
ethernet0.addressType = “static”
ethernet0.address = “00:50:56:3e:86:29”
