Good question – I’m pretty sure it was v9 that we were running into problems 
with. Installing on same hardware required a new license re-host.

Hopefully the documented behavior for vm’s hold true and I don’t have to worry 
about a static MAC address on these two HA vms.

What version was that on?

I always make sure to get the platform-config.xml from "utils create report 
platform" to make sure I don't change anything on these rebuilds.

So is this different than physical hardware? Because I reinstalled on physical 
hardware using the _exact_ same settings and had to have the licenses re-issued 
because the license mac changed.

The virtual mac address on the VM does not affect the license MAC generated for 
the licensing, and it still uses the same old method as previous and your 
license MAC can be "generated" or seen by using the AFG tool: 
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/applicat/content/cuc-afg/index.html

Taken from that webpage:
The License MAC is generated based on the Primary Node's Time Zone, NTP Server 
1, NIC Speed, NIC Duplex, Host Name, DHCP, IP Address, IP Mask, Gateway 
Address, Primary DNS, SMTP Location, and Certificate Information.

Just curious what really triggers a license change in UCCx.

I do know that any re-installation will do it, regardless if it's on the same 
physical hardware. I'm going to assume that re-installing on virtual equipment 
will have the same outcome.

What if I install on virtual using a static MAC address and simply export and 
import the UCCx VMs onto another ESXi host?

Just trying to plan accordingly.
