Mellanox VF changes MAC

May 1, 2022
Stockholm, Sweden

I recently noticed a problem, I use a Mellanox VF (Connectx-5 EN) and it seems like it changes MAC-adress for each boot. That's a problem since I use SLAAC to add IPv6 adresses.
Here is a screenshot from the manual. I guess that I can't be the only one with this issue, is there some good way to handle this from Proxmox som I get a static mac?
