Host ID for ec2 instance with two ENI
Mornings - I too am interested in a similar question to dianalenart (I noticed the subject "Host ID for a server with two ethernet adapters)
My goal is to move the build machine to an EC2 instance on AWS.
Because the MAC address changes on a new ec2 instance, my thought was to attach a secondary nic (called an ENI in Amazon world). This secondary ENI will be static, long running and attached to one ec2 instance at a time. If the ec2 instance gets terminated, for whatever reason, the ENI with be disconnected from that instance and attached to the replacement.
Therefor I need (hope) to register/activate the license against the secondary ENI. Sadly FelexNetHostIDExe returns the MAC addresss of the primary.
1. Getting the MAC address is easy. If I get the MAC address of the secondary ENI and activate the license against it, will this cause any issues down the road (possibly during a automatic reactivation) Will it even allow me to activate it against the secondary ENI. It's tough to test these things as of course moving keys around is a limited activity without involving support.
2. Is there an easier/better way of doing what I am trying to accomplish?
