cisco waas kvm hypervisor revealed v08.07.10.txt

Disregard XenSource as the hypervisor (only looking at OUI gets you nowhere).. (updated)

Apparently OUI has little relevance.. 00:16:3E is used by KVM/QEMU as well.

Figure 14-3 on the following documentation page:
Screenshots show a virtual interface with the MAC of: 00:16:3E:54:B6:23

I was upset when I couldn't copy the existing MAC from a physical NIC to one under VMware, but I understood their point (and rightly so, they did put a switch to allow an override via the .vmx config)

Other notable points:
