Migration Authorisation Code. This topic has come up in my work place.
I have been asked to go through every pc on the premise and locate the Migration Authorisation Code (MAC). Is this even possible?

Does anyone have any information on this? I have no experience with this.
Any websites that may offer more information on this?
Don't remember learning about Migration Authorisation Code's in A+ class...

Thank you for your time.

A Migration Auth Code is something to do with a provider I believe...And I thought it was based on the provider of the internet service.

Are you sure they weren't asking for a MAC Address of the NIC on the computers? That would make more sense to me. I use MAC Addresses for proper inventory.

Sorry if that sounds like a stupid question.

NO you are 100% RIGHT. It is MAC address not MAC Code. It was explained to me wrong.
Yes it will be done to inventory and keep track of pcs. Any suggestions how to do this or where I could look for the information.
Do I need special software to pull this information.

Oh good :thumbsup:

Now that we have that cleared up,

Run a command prompt (Start->Run->cmd)

Then type in ipconfig /all

If there are both wireless and wired connections, there will be 2 MAC addresses. Look for the field that says Physical Address in the form of 00-0F-FE-6B-F5-10. (Obviously not those numbers though). In the case of having two NICs then there will be multiple entries. I can take a screenshot of my laptop to show you but I think this should be enough to get you where you need :flowers:
