In order to use virtual MAC (vMAC) addresses on a dedicated server, you first need to make sure your server supports this feature.
Support for the vMAC function is a prerequisite for all actions concerning virtual MACs.
This guide explains how to check in the OVHcloud API if your dedicated server supports the virtual MAC feature.
If you are not familiar with using the OVHcloud API, please refer to our guide on getting started with the OVHcloud API.
Open the following API endpoint in the API console:
Enter the internal server name into the
serviceName field, then click
The result will show a "vmac / supported" entry which can be "true" or "false" (boolean value).
Interpretation of the result
false: You cannot use the virtual MAC feature on this server.
true: You can use the virtual MAC feature on this server.
