In RedHat Linux, The MAC addr is stored in:
/etc/sysconfig/network file.
Good luck,

I have changed ip address class but failed, I am working on desktop PC not conneced to lan.

Please help and suggest a wayout.

By: Marco Gralike Mon, 16 Oct 2006 14:39:40 +0000 What happens when you do the following:

[root@]# arp
Address HWtype HWaddress Flags Mask Iface
14-319-373.amis.local ether 00:07:E9:6A:3C:C3 C eth0 ether 00:50:54:FF:1C:F0 C eth0
amisnt02.amis.local ether 00:06:5B:FC:88:6F C eth0
amisnt02.amis.local ether 00:06:5B:FC:88:6F C eth0

A few leeds I found (looks like the behaviour in Fedora 2 should be same):

I’m not a linux expert, but I can imagine that if you use static or DHCP environment settings, this file maybe is OR is not created or needed when using for instance static.

By: Steve Morton Mon, 16 Oct 2006 03:22:31 +0000 I’m running Red Hat Fedora Core 2. I need to clone hard drives to create more machines. This also clones the MAC address of the original machine. There’s no entry in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 for the MAC address. Where is the MAC address stored ?

Thank you.
