There seems to be no way to change the mac address of my external router interface via command-line. The parameter "mac_address" of the port is read-only. So, I changed the "mac_address" directly in the database (I know it's dangerous). I restarted everything, but unfortunately I was still unable to ping the router's interface. I have found out via Wireshark that the ARP-Response for the corresponding IP Address still contains the old MAC address. What else must be updated in order to change an interface's MAC address?
