Recently, after I ran
apt-get upgrade, my Pi 3 running Raspbian Jessie started using a random MAC address on
eth0 after every reboot. I'm pretty sure this has something to do with the upgrade since I haven't messed with my network config in a long time.
/etc/network/interfaces file is as follows:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet auto
I tried appending the following line to it but to no avail:
hwaddress ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
As some people suggested in this thread I checked the serial no. in
/proc/cpuinfo and it matches the static MAC address the Pi previously used.
Is there any way I could go back to having a static MAC address on my Pi?
