Description

Problem:

When i change the mac address in the running guest system, there is no more network connectivitiy for the guest.

Problem exists in Version3.2.4 (VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.4_62467_fedora12-1.x86_64)
Problem did not exist in Version3.1.8 (VirtualBox-3.1-3.1.8_61349_fedora12-1.x86_64)

I can change the MAC adress in my guest:

  ifconfig eth0 down
  ifconfig eth0 hw ether <new mac address>
  ifconfig eth0 up

Workaround:

  ifconfig eth0 promisc

Setting the interface into promiscous mode re-establishes network connectivity.

Host System:Fedora 12
Guest System:RHEL 5.4
