Description

I ran into pretty much the exact same issue as detailed on this web page: [[http://fluxsmith.blogspot.com/2010/04/opensolaris-networking-nvidia-mcp67.html]] (except of course on OpenIndiana 151a5). The driver update command he gave worked but then I ran into the same MAC address reversal issue as well. This reverses the MAC address not by all characters but by each grouping. For example:

If true MAC is 00:AB:CD:EF:12:34 then it shows up as 34:12:EF:CD:AB:00.

I have been able to use his command ifconfig <NIC> ether <CorrectMAC> to temporarily fix the issue. However adding the command to /etc/hostname.<NIC> did not make the change permanent. In the short term it would be great to get where the best place to put the command to make the workaround survive reboot. In the long term though it would be good to fix the code so this workaround is not needed.
