Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 35967
MAC address all zeros
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:20:19 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.74 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.14-5.0 i686; Nav)
My MAC address is all zeros as reported by ifconfig.
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: 00:00:00:00:00:00
Expected Results: Globally unique MAC address
It basically works anyway (00:00:00:00:00:00 is unique!) I've tried two
ethernet cards, DE450 and DE500. I think both use tulip driver. I've
ping'd it from multiple other machines (Redhat 6.2 and M$) arp -a shows all
zero mac address.
This is fixed in a later kernel.
