Operations Manager supports VMware ESX 3.5, ESXi 4.x, and ESXi 5.0. Operations Manager musthave the same system resources available to it, inside the virtualization environment that it has for astandard (nonvirtual) installation.While determining the performance of Operations Manager in your virtual setup, you should be awarethat the VMware instance will use some system resources that would normally be available to OperationsManager in a standard installation. Additional requirements for running Operations Manager in avirtualization environment might vary with your environment and system load.Operations Manager can be installed on a virtual machine with dynamic MAC address for evaluation.However, you must configure the virtual machine with a static MAC address to purchase the permanentlicense for Operations Manager.

The static MAC address is required because licensing uses node-locking technology. The license file can
only be used with the static MAC address that you supply.
Note The static MAC address must be within the following range: 00:50:56:00:00:00 to 00:50:56:3F:FF:FF.
To set up a static MAC address:
Step 1 Power down the virtual machine.
Step 2 In the Inventory panel, select the virtual machine.
Step 3 Click the Summary tab and then click Edit Settings.
Step 4 In the Hardware list, select Network Adapter.
Step 5 For MAC address, select Manual.
Step 6 Change the current MAC address of the virtual machine to a static MAC address in the following range:
00:50:56:00:00:00 to 00:50:56:3F:FF:FF.
