The license is tied to the device management address. So if you re-address the unit, the license check will fail.
You will not be able to configured anything if the license is not valid btw.
So how I got around this, I tried at first to see if I could apply a secondary address by using the old address. This was not possible.
So next , I attempted to define a loopback-interface by using the old_address, & again not possible.
So I ended up reapplying the old_address on one of the other 3 unused ports. This and reboot, cause a re-activation of the license and unit was again operational.
So knowing this, I wonder how strong is the license enforcement on a FAZ-VM image.
