Per Pod MAC Address Maanagement

Post by cheshire13 » Fri Apr 23, 2021 11:41 pm

It would be nice if EVE-ng would allow per Pod Mac address management.

Would be nice to use locally assigned MAC Address

x2‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx
x6‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx
xA‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx
xE‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx‑xx

I know we can set the per VM mac address, but would like to make it so the admin can set up a range on a per POD basis to allow for the VMs to pull from.

By "pod" do you mean lab? Because I'm not seeing this - all of my labs are starting with the same mac range and this is causing some issues for things trying to get dhcp addresses externally from eve-ng.

I see where I can manually edit each device's MAC, but I'd prefer what you described - that the lab ID is part of the base for all macs assigned in the lab,

Thanks,
