Hi, I hope this is not a stupid question but I wasn't able to find answer in documentation or wiki.

Is it possible to manually set up the mac address of the starting VMs?

Thanks for any response. ms

Current network managers all generate random MAC addresses for new virtual interfaces. They will be all in the 02:16:3e:XX:XX:XX range. I do not believe that manually manipulating the database would help, so long story short this is not currently a feature that exists in Nova.

Will this functionality be supported in future versions?. For us it is very important to have a feature similar to the fixed leases used in OpenNebula.
