Original Mac Address For NIC



  • Hi,

    I created lagg0 for my 4 x NIC cards. After created it, I cannot see the original mac address for the other ther NIC cards. Can I get it without breaking the lagg0?

    Please advise.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    This is normal! If you create a LAG (LACP) you will be setting up a primary or master Port and then you add
    the secondary or slave Ports, and for the whole LAG, that is acting now as only one interface shown from
    the outside, is now showing then the MAC Address from the primary or Master Port of the LAG (LACP)!!!

    Can I get it without breaking the lagg0?

    • in shell command # ifconfig
    • Under the DHCP lease information
    • If you reboot the machine in side of the BIOS
    • Perhaps by using an external program likes the Colasoft mac scanner
    • Under the point "interface assignments" in pfSense you will perhaps see them
    • looking in or showing the ARP cache or the ARP table (Diagnostics > ARP Table)
