Service provider reported not allowed MAC addresses in subnet

Mohammed Labeebudeen


We were trying to install Citrix Hypervisor on a baremetal server. After installation, we have created two VMs on it with each vm have its own MAC address. Our service provider won't allow outgoing traffics from multiple mac addresses. The network configuration of our hypervisor should only let packets exit the system with the MAC address of the real NIC. So is there any way to overcome this ?

This is not a problem with the hypervisor but an issue with your network service provider.

The only thing you could do is create a separate VM as a "router" VM and route the traffic from the other VMs through that with a NAT firewall. The VMs each need to have a unique MAC address as that is what is used to ensure that network traffic for the VMs is sent to the correct place.
