Re: Mac address

in response to
Sorry, but what is an original MAC address?
From your output its clear that the MAC address of interface igb0 is 0:21:28:8e:98:fa, the MAC address of igb1 is 0:21:28:8e:98:fb and the mac address of igb3 is 0:21:28:8e:98:fd.
The SPARC systems have a MAC address defined in the eeprom, which could be considered an original MAC-address, no such feature exists in the x86 architecture as far as i know..
