More than one Pine64 - all the same mac address
#1
Hi again,

I have more than one pine64 but all have by default the same mac address which caused some headaches because of network problems and outages ... It took a while to find out what the reason is. I had to change the mac address permanently on two of my three pine64 to get it running.

So this is what I did to manage it:

# sudo nano /boot/uEnv.txt

There I changed the "ethaddr" entry and added another "mac_addr" entry:

ethaddr=36:c9:e3:f1:b8:01
mac_addr=36:c9:e3:f1:b8:01

After reboot, all went fine! Hope that helps

Thanks Zhara, and no offense, but you must have missed the discussions of late.  Please go see the 'stickies' at the top of the Ethernet sub-forum.
