I have Graylog deployed as a VM from the OVA template. On the VM NIC options I have an automatically generated hardware address. I use this hardware address to reserve an IP on DHCP for this server. When I boot the server, it grabs another random IP from the pool and the hardware address looks strange on DHCP. It’s about 3x longer than it should be and it doesn’t match to anything on the server under ifconfig.
when I do a dhclient release and renew I will get the proper reserved address, but everytime I reboot server it will grab a different IP because of the strange hardware address. If this is expected behavior I will just statically configure IP.
