Virtual machine MAC problem



  • Server
    • FOG Version: 1.3.3
    • OS: ubuntu 14.04.1.LTS
    Client
    • Service Version: 0.11.8
    • OS: Windows 7 64bits
    Description

    We have Virtualbox and VMware Player on our masters, they create virtual network device with address MAC. When I deploy my images those virtual network devices keep they original MAC address and if a machine get a MAC address in secondary fog client in others computers crash.
    Is it possible to ban MAC address in fog?
    Thanks

    @Lenain You are welcome. Does this solve the issue for you?

    @Lenain Sorry I lost track of this. I am not sure if the second MAC address is actually causing the issue.
    But maybe give this a try: In the FOG web GUI -> Host Management -> select one of your hosts. There are two checkboxes next to the MAC addresses. One is “Ignore MAC on client”. This could possible help.



  • @Sebastian-Roth
    Do you have a idea of what could it be?

    Do you have a screenshot of the “crash” or error?!

    I mean that the fog client refuse to work because it found the secondary address MAC registered to another computer. Here the error:

    @Lenain I am not sure if I fully understand what’s the problem with those virtual MAC addresses. Can you please explain more detailed what you mean when saying this:

    and if a machine get a MAC address in secondary fog client in others computers crash

    Do you have a screenshot of the “crash” or error?!
