           Summary: Unable to change mac address of vif in Dom0
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Hypervisor
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: jhebus@xxxxxxxxx

I am trying to do the following sequence to a vif created by a guest domain
from dom0.

 ifconfig vif1.0 down
 ifconfig vif1.0 hw ether 00:80:48:BA:d1:30
 ifconfig vif1.0 up

However the second operation produces SIOCSIFHWADDR: Operation not supported.

I am able to do this to the real hardware interfaces without problem.

I have xen 4.1.1 compiled from source, and dom0 from source following this

I this specific to me, or a general problem?
