       I am trying to find out how I can change the BIA MAC address on an interface on a EX4200 Switch. I looked online and couldn't find anything.



    Thank you,

    You can always use the question mark ? to find out the settings you can make.

    Also the help topic or help apropos are great commands;

    # help topic interfaces mac

    set interfaces ge-0/0/6 mac 00:2d:88:12:26:91

    # set interfaces ge-0/0/6 ?
    Possible completions:
    accounting-profile Accounting profile name
    + apply-groups Groups from which to inherit configuration data
    + apply-groups-except Don't inherit configuration data from these groups
    description Text description of interface
    disable Disable this interface
    encapsulation Physical link-layer encapsulation
    flexible-vlan-tagging Support for no tagging, or single and double 802.1q VLAN tagging
    > gigether-options Gigabit Ethernet interface-specific options
    gratuitous-arp-reply Enable gratuitous ARP reply
    > hold-time Hold time for link up and link down
    link-mode Link operational mode
    mac Hardware MAC address
