Ethernet address: ‘*’. It conflicts with VMware reserved MACs.

After manually modified the MAC address of a VM, got below error when try to power on the VM:

Ethernet address: ‘*’. It conflicts with VMware reserved MACs.

The solution is to modify the VMX file manually, and add below line:

ethernetN.checkMACAddress = “false”
ethernetN.addressType = “static”
