Description Momin 2017-06-18 07:38:52 EDT
Description of problem:
New MAC Address on every boot on Raspberry Pi 3

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time system is rebooted.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 26 Beta armhfp on Raspberry Pi 3
2. Default Network settings (DHCP etc.)
3. On every reboot.

Actual results:
Different MAC address is displayed in "ip addr" command. Other devices on the network also see different MAC address.

Expected results:
The MAC address should come from the hardware itself, and should remain the same across reboots.

Additional info:
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
Fresh install of Fedora 26 Beta
dnf update -y after the initial install.

I reverted back to Fedora 25, on which I didn't have the problem. I can confirm this problem does not exist on Fedora 25.
