License Key requires a known MAC address, but the MAC is Dynamic...???

I have a new server installation and a license key that gets installed on one of the virtual servers. The license key requires a MAC address to associate to, but with virtual machines there aren't any physical properties to really tie that license key to. So how do you make those two opposing items work together? Assign the virtual machine a static MAC address.
