Ticket #5538 (new defect)
Cannot assign specific mac address for bridged networking

In our networking environment we all MAC addresses must be pre-registered before the computer can even get on the network. Hence I would very much like to specify a specific address in Settings / Network / Adapter 1 / Attached to: (Click on cog wheel) / Guest MAC Address. However it seems I cannot enter any text to the text widget. It appears I can just have VirtualBox assign another random address by clicking on the green cycle. I can change the setting by editing the XML file manually after creating the virtual machine, but it would be much simpler to just assign one my registered addresses in the GUI.
