Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.

Comment 3 Tom Caspy 2015-03-04 16:11:48 UTC
I just tested it with latest develop, and it seems like this may have been fixed in the networking feature.
Can you retest this with latest Sat build, to see if it works as expected?

Comment 7 Bryan Kearney 2016-04-07 13:25:33 UTC
I am clearing the needing. TOm was acking to have this re-tested and it is indeed ON_QA.

Comment 8 Sachin Ghai 2016-04-11 11:32:45 UTC
Verified with sat6.2 beta snap6.2.

I provisioned a host (discovered host to mimic bare-metal provisioning) and edited the same host and defined virtual interfaces. Interfaces were created successfully and didn't see the "mac address is already in use" error.

Later, I rebuild the host to see configured interfaces on host
