Ticket #5149 (new defect)
Network Bridge adapter changes MAC address after upgrade from 3.0.6 r52128 to 3.0.8 r53138

After I upgraded VirtualBox (running on WinXP Host) from 3.0.6 r52128 to 3.0.8 r53138, I found that the network bridge I create (between "VirtualBox Host-Only Network" and my real Broadcom 440x 10-100 Integrated Controller) has a different MAC address (note: this is the network bridge MAC address I am talking about here). This causes a number of problems:
- I have iTunes (on WinXP) with a number of programs I bought, and they seem to count the number of different MAC addresses that I am using when I sync with my iPhone. Hence I ran into problems after upgrading VirtualBox 5 times!
- I have MAC address based filtering at the external firewall which would then need to change
- I have DHCP Server with fixed IP mapping to MAC address, and this also needs to change.
Problem #1 (related to iTunes Rights Management) is causing the biggest headache for me at the moment.
Hence, is there a way for me to manually set the MAC address of the Bridged Network adapter?
Thanks & regards.
