Failed to run: ip link set dev veth7e6c37ce address 11:16:3e:59:b3:71: RTNETLINK answers: Cannot assign requested address
I am having issues changing the MAC address of containers, even when setting what seem to be a valid MAC addreses but the container no longer starts.
For example, take the mac address generated by LXD, and changing the prefix, e.g.
01:16:3e:69:fe:8b and the container can longer being started.
Mac address seems valid but it fails, why is this?
