  1. Collect the Mac address of the machine where you will be installing the Enterprise Dashboard.
  2. Identify the name and email address to send the license file.
  3. Contact CA Support or your account representative to request a new license file and provide the the details from step 1 and 2.
  4. The support team will create a new license file (devtestlic.xml) and send it to the email address identified in step 2.

10.3 requires a MAC address only for new and renewal customers. Existing customers do not need it.

In the Subject field:  "Requesting License for DevTest 10.3.0"

If you are new user of DevTest and have never had a license or renewing your license, then specify the MAC address of the machine where the Enterprise Dashboard is running.  If you have multiple Enterprise Dashboards, you will need to request multiple licenses specifying the MAC address for each machine.

If you are requesting a new license and an existing user and your license has not expired, you do not need to provide the MAC address

To find MAC address on Windows:

 

Choose Control Panel.

Choose Local Area Connection.

Choose Details.

The Physical Address with be the MAC Address.

Ok.

 

And how do I find my MAC Address on a server with three network cards? When I do ipconfig /all I see.  I assume it will be the mac address of the Front adapter and not the backup or management adapter.

Any 10.3 install whether it is fresh or upgrade from a prior version requires a new license file.

You mention renewal and new customers need a new license for 10.3. For our customer we currently have a license that seems to support 10.x installations. I can see: 

<product>LISA</product>
<issuedate>12/18/17 16:23:06 -0600</issuedate>
<validuntil>12/30/18 00:00:00 -0600</validuntil>
<type>Server</type>
<versions>8,9,10</versions>
<acts>1</acts>

 

Will this work for the 10.3 installation or do we still need to renew our license?
