Subject Re: Issue about using a invalid MAC Address in vSphere
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 03:33:27 GMT

Based on a quick review of the code, there is no way to force CloudStack to
assign MAC addresses in the range which VMware considers valid/expected.

If you wanted to suppress the warning for specific VMs, you could try
adding a line to the VMX files:

ethernet0.checkMACAddress = "false"

The procedure is described here:

If that works for you, please let us know and we could file an
improvement to have it automatically included for new VMware VMs.
