Is there an easy way to do this? I read an article about using a tool called vfuse, but it didn't seem to like the newer version of Fusion. I get an error 500 from the profile enroll window.
It seems like its just setting the hw.model and serialNumber field in the .vmx file anyhow?
So far I've set the model to one that should work (but I didn't have the serial number for), but it doesn't work, I poured through our surplus models and found a serial of a machine that was disposed of - but it didn't work.
I set the hw.model to the exact same one that the serial number came off of, but then the VM kernel panics on startup (probably because the model isn't compatible with 10.14).
Someone in another post suggested using the host's serial (Macmini7,1) - and incrementing it by one, but that didn't work either.
Thought I would ask on here before contacting VMWare tech support tomorrow.
On a side rant: I don't get why Apple has to do this to me - I manage clients on JAMF and ConfigMgr - and this is not an issue I have on Windows/Linux.
