EXA VM Deployment Questions


#1
  1. Are license keys tied to the virtual MAC address of our EXA appliance?

  2. Can we connect the second disk we need to deploy for the EXA as network attached storage or do we have to add it as a second drive in VMWare?


#2
  1. No, licenses are not tied to any attributes of virtual appliances. In order for a virtual appliance to be licensed, the appliance must be able to resolve DNS queries for *.a.extrahop.com.

  2. The second disk for an EXA must be mounted as a directly-connected hard drive in VMWare, and not as any type of NAS.
