Binding data plane interfaces to MAC addresses
Consider a scenario in which you are running a vRouter in a virtual machine (VM) and the virtual interfaces might not consistently appear at the same locations on each instantiation of the VM.
|Data plane interface||MAC address|
|dp0s3 (physically in slot 3 on the VM)||00:01:02:03:05:06|
|dp0s4 (physically in slot 4 on the VM)||00:01:02:03:05:07|
vyatta@R1# set interfaces dataplane dp0s3 hardware mac 00:01:02:03:05:06 vyatta@R1# set interfaces dataplane dp0s4 hardware mac 00:01:02:03:05:07 vyatta@R1# commit vyatta@R1# save
You do not have to reboot the vRouter.
