Downsides to manually configuring an interface MAC address
I'm in a situation where I need to set the Current address of one of my SRX interfaces to something other than the Hardware address. Does anyone know if there are any downsides/gotchas to doing this? Specifically, something like:
set interfaces ge-0/0/0 mac <new_mac_here>
Testing seems to show no ill effects so far. I haven't been able to find this statement in documentation yet, so I'm wondering about caveats to using it.
