Moving VMWare Workstation EVE-NG Pro VM Files to another location

Post by nmaxi » Sat Nov 30, 2019 11:07 am

Hi
I wanna move my EVE-Pro VM files (vmx, vmdk, etc...) to another location (to an SSD), when I want to open it in the vmware ws, it asks me : have you moved or copied it, I know when we choose moved it option, it keeps uuid and mac address ... .
Is it OK to do this? does it create any problems for my license?

It asks you because if you let someone to copy your virtual machine and use it the person should choose "I copied it". It will create unique identifier for the machine including MAC address etc.

In your case you can choose "I moved it" because it is on the same PC with the same user so no change needs to be done.
