Description Martin Jenner 2013-06-24 16:13:57 EDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.11) Gecko/20121116 Firefox/10.0.11
Build Identifier: 

Currently there is no way with the current virt-sandbox-service command -N NETWORK, --network NETWORK switch to specify a MAC address when crearting a container, not having this ability means you cannot set the hostname for a network interface to use DHCP/IP lookup services.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Martin Jenner 2013-06-24 16:16:34 EDT
Use DHCP/IP lookup services to map the MAC to a fixed IP address.

    Add support for configuring NIC mac addresses
    Allow config of NIC mac addresses via a 'mac' parameter on
    the command line eg
      virt-sandbox -c qemu:///session -N mac=02:04:05:05:05:06 /bin/sh
    (and also for virt-sandbox-service)
