Description zhengqin 2014-04-02 09:55:24 UTC
Description of problem:

On New VM step 5 of 5 "Ready to begin installation" window: 
1. If uncheck "Set a fixed MAC address" checkbox, the New VM's mac address is still same with fixed Mac Address. 
2. If clear fixed MAC address and then uncheck "Set a fixed MAC address" checkbox, an error about mac address format will pop up.

That's to day, the checkbox "Set a fixed MAC address" does not work, create vm window will be always use the fixed mac address whether this checkbox checked or not.


Version-Release number of selected component:
virt-manager-0.10.0-20.el7.noarch

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start virt-manager.

2. Create a New VM by PXE or other method until step 5 of 5 "Ready to begin installation" window.

3. Clear fixed MAC address and then uncheck "Set a fixed MAC address" checkbox.


Actual result:
1. An error about mac address format will pop up.
2. If uncheck "Set a fixed MAC address" checkbox at step 3, the New VM's mac address is still same with fixed Mac Address. 
3. That's to day, the checkbox "Set a fixed MAC address" does not work, create vm window will be always use the fixed mac address whether this checkbox checked or not.




Expected results:
1. No error will pop up and a random mac address will be generated without "Set a fixed MAC address" checked.
2. The New VM's mac address should be random instead of fixed one.



Additional info:
1. This issue also occurs on RHEL6.

Comment 3 Cui Lei 2014-09-29 09:24:16 UTC
I can reproduce this issue with virt-manager-0.10.0-20.el7.noarch.

Verify the issue with virt-manager-1.1.0-3.el7,

This issue was fixed. So change the status from 'ON_QA' to 'VERIFIED'
