Re: [Xen-users] Re: 2 NIC HVM's not working properly.

Quoting Martin Leben <martin2006@xxxxxxxx>:


Sadique's advice to use 00:16:3e:xx:xx:xx is correct, but the reason
that "01:16:3e:4c:69:28" doesn't work is because it is a broadcast
address. Nothing else.

A broadcast address is specified by setting the least significant bit
in the most significant byte is set to 1. See

(And by the way, you can pick any MAC address that begins with "x2",
"x6", "xA" or "xE". They are so called "locally administered addresses"
and their first byte is binary "xxxxxx10".)

Best regards,

Thanks for that bit of information. I did not know this.
