Chaning hwaddr (networking / ifconfig) on CentOS 6.0
I just installed a new CentOS in a wmvare workstation container. I need to be able to specify mac address for the OS.
I tried what I found on this topic; changing HWADDR in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 to the (and ONBOOT="yes"). I also tried adding MACADDR but it did not help either.
Then, in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules there was the mac address I did not want to use so changed that one to the one I wanted. After reboot, the system kept the one I changed in eth0 there and added the wrong one calling that one as et01 and eth0 has its address.
Please help me; how do I change the mac address on CentOS 6.0?
