Hi all,

We've had a couple of our VMs with a duplicate MAC-Addresses.
Work Around: Shutdown the VM, set MAC-Address to manual and back to auto, this generates a new MAC time to time.
Is the issue caused by deploying from a Template that has NIC or is there a bug?

>Well, I am trying to figure out how would OTV-EDGE not prevent this from happening across site or even locally for that matter, is the problem on VMware, 'am a bit puzzled.
