  2. Identify the name and email address to send the license file.
  3. Contact CA Global Success Team or your account representative to request a new license file and provide the the details from step 1 and 2.
  4. The support team will create a new license file (devtestlic.xml) and send it to the email address identified in step 2.

You can download DevTest directly from the Download Management section of the CA Broadcom support site.  

A MAC address is required only for new and renewal customers. Existing customers do not need it.
