    What is the effect of assigning a static MAC address during live migration ?

      Hi Guys!


      I got to know that the MAC of a VM changes after migration only if the vm is restarted. But the definition of live migration says that "It is the kind of migration which happens without turning off the running VM or application."

      The new MAC is allocated from the MAC pool in the destination.

      I want to know that whether there is no change in the MAC address after migration if we use Static MAC address for the VM.


      And why it is necessary to assign a static MAC for a VM running linux distribution.


      Thanks in adv !!!
