You can use the IP address and Hostname for the configuration, but cannot use MAC address

No it is not possible.

General recommendation would be to either give the GUP machine static IP address and then in the LU policy specify that address or use the dynamic configuration and in policy specify the name of the GUP so that clients can resolve it to the IP. MAC address input is not supported.
