Anyone have a fix for this? I'm on 4.4.192-rk3399 and the mac keeps changing. With armbian-config I can assign static ip and it stays with reboot, but mac still changes which is causing problem my dhcp server. It loses connection when it tries to renew even though eth0 still show the right ip. Restart networkmanager doesn't seem to be doing anything, I'd have to reboot to bring up the connection.

 

EDIT:  this does the trick to get a fixed mac.

# find connection name

nmcli con show

# for example, name is armbian

sudo nmcli con modify armbian 802-3-ethernet.cloned-mac-address $MAC

Hopfully that won't kill my connection anymore.

Spoke too soon. Was having issue with static MAC because I had assigned static DHCP mapping in my firewall. Removed the mapping from the firewall and armbian has no trouble keeping the same mac and ip.
