Description Meni Yakove 2012-12-23 10:47:14 EST
Created attachment 668063 [details]

Description of problem:
When adding network with specific MAC address and it fails, this MAC cannot be used again.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create network (vmnet1) on the cluster (Do not attach the network to the host)
2. Create VM and add the network vmnet1 with MAC 11:22:33:44:55:66 > the operation should fail.
3. Add rhevm network to the VM with MAC 11:22:33:44:55:66.
Actual results:
Add rhevm network to VM fail with error  "MAC address already in use"

Expected results:
Network rhevm should be added to the VM

After talking to Meni adding the missing details -

- step 2 fails because the VM was running and he used hotplug.

BZ 842317 is not about hot plug so I'm not sure this is regression.

Meni - can you please reproduce the scenario from bug 842317 see if this bug is indeed a regression.

This BZ in not related to bug 842317. (This BZ related to hot-plug)

Comment 4 Meni Yakove 2013-01-07 04:19:45 EST
Verified on rhevm-3.2.0-4.el6ev.noarch.

Can add NIC to vm with same MAC after adding NIC to VM failed.
