The MAC address is the hardware address or physical address of a network device. Scout used to identify devices by their MAC addresses. In the meantime, the client identifier does this job.
MAC addresses can be used for the following tasks, for example:
Reserve device profiles
Create dynamic device groups
In Scout, MAC addresses are normally represented as 12-digit numbers without separators.
From Scout 15 2204, you can also use colons or hyphens as separators between the 6 pairs:
|12-digit MAC address without separators||001122334455|
|12-digit MAC address with the 6 pairs separated by colons1||00:11:22:33:44:55|
|12-digit MAC address with the 6 pairs separated by hyphens2||00-11-22-33-44-55|
The MAC address usually is determined from the network interface (Lan or WLAN card).
