Can AppStream2.0 streaming instances be assigned a predictable MAC Address or ENI?

0

We would like to deploy software via appstream that requires a license tied to the MAC address. I can see the ENIs in the EC2 page, but those are transient. Is there a way to assign a network interface to each appstream streaming instance that would guarantee a repeatable MAC address, or range or MAC addresses for multiple instances?

Thanks!

No, there's no way to pre-allocate specific MAC addresses or ENIs to an AppStream 2.0 streaming instance. Software that has licenses tied to fixed items (like MAC addresses) don't work well for a non-persistent streaming environment. In general, concurrency-based licensing or named user licenses work best for non-persistent environments.

If your use case can support persistence, it may work well for Amazon WorkSpaces.

Software vendors often have a solution to get their application working in a non persistent DaaS or VDI environment. I recommend contacting the vendor to see what options are available.
