Fixate HW-Address of lxdbr0

Hi there,

I’m using various versions of LXD (2.x to 3.2) on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS installed via snap. I’m following the stable branch. Whenever the lxd snap is refreshed lxdbr0 changes its hardware address. This creates multiple device entries in our monitoring system (OpenNMS), which uses device name and hardware address to store performance metrics. Is there a way to fixate the hardware address of lxdbr0?

Can you file a feature request at

It should be possible to add a bridge.hwaddr property which, at least on newer kernels, would set the MAC address of the bridge (some bridge implementation don’t let you set a MAC until something’s been joined).
