I am preparing to upgrade our router from 1.1.7 to 1.2.6.S1. I am testing the upgrade in HyperV VM. During the test all MAC addresses of the VM router changed. Which meant loss of connectivity due to VyOS creating new eth ports (eth0 change to eth8 and so 0n). This meant I had to result to access the router via console.
My question is: Is there a danger of happening this on physical device? I don’t have console access to the actual physical router. I would like to prevent me driving 100 miles to where the router is physically located.
P.S. We Clearstream have support contract with VyOS team, but I cannot figure out how to start ticket under the contract login. Any hint will be appreciated.
