Hi Experts,

I need my EC2 instance to have a fixed MAC address (for a particular commercial application).
I understand this can be achieved by creating a new Elastic network interface (EIN).
I've created it and attached it to the instance, but the IPv4 Public IP is blank.
How can I get it defined?
