Sun Ultra 45 Mac Address

Sun Ultra 45 Mac Address

Newbie here, my apologies in advance...Is there a way to change the MAC address on a Sun Ultra 45 System? I have tried several different methods, mkpl, Setenv, Ipconfig, ifconfig. None of these work at all. All I get is the command back with a question mark next to it, i.e. "mkpl?" I have successfully used the mkpl on the Sun Ultra 10 and the Sun Sunblade150 but it wont work on the Ultra 45. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Sun Ultra 45 Mac Address

Make sure you're typing the mkpl command at the 'ok' prompt. It's a PROM command. Also, the version of your PROM might not support it. You might be able to patch or upgrade your boot PROM to a version that supports it.
