Configuring the Device MAC Address

Configuring the Device MAC Address


Billions of devices exist on global networks, and each device has a MAC address. Theoretically, each device has a unique MAC address. However, MAC address conflicts may occur because of incorrect MAC address configuration. In addition, you may need to use a specified MAC address for a device. In these situations, you need to change the device's current MAC address.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run set system mac-address mac-address mac-num mac-num

    The device MAC address is set.

    By default, the device is assigned a default MAC address upon delivery.

    • The configured MAC address takes effect after the device restarts.

    • The device's MAC address cannot be all 0s, all 1s, a multicast MAC address, or an invalid unicast MAC address.

    • If the number of MAC addresses is 16, the last hexadecimal digit of these MAC addresses must be 0.

    • The device's MAC address cannot be a MAC address in the MAC address table.
    • The device's MAC address cannot be 0000-5e00-01XX or 0000-5e00-02XX.
    • The set system mac-address mac-num command is mutually exclusive with the set system mac-address slot slot-id command that sets the stack system MAC address. You cannot execute both commands on the same device.

  3. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
