I did use the "Add Multiple" for this, but I didn't put a MAC as we hadn't created virtual machines for these (and thus had no MAC to use). I created 10 computers using add multiple.
I plan to create 10 virtual machines on the VMWare host and get their MAC addresses and add them to the 10 computers in the computer table that were created with add multiple. From what I understand, this should resolve it. Correct me if I'm wrong. To save some time next time, I'd have created the 10 virtual machines first, grabbed the first MAC address, and then used the "Add Multiple" with that MAC address. I'd still have to actually create (or clone) the 10 virtual machines though.
