VMSPM error 28
Port 'DAC3B97C-9274-46F6-A097-05200E9B2E3B' was prevented from using MAC
address '00-15-5D-10-FC-03' because it is pinned to port
I'm having this error in a Windows 2008 R2 hyper v cluster with all mac
adresses of all guest servers. Besides I'm having the same error on both
nodes of the cluster with the physical adapter of the parent partition and
the virtual switch created over that network adapter.
Any help will be apreciated.
Thanks in advance

Did you configure the MAC Adress Range in the Virtual Network Manager ?
Tuesday, June 01, 2010 2:13 PM
The mac Address Range in the Virtual Network Manager is Dynamic and it's different in both nodes of the cluster. Besides I have tried changing the mac address from one guest server to static but I keep on getting the same error (with the static mac address obviosly)

I am getting similar warnings Event ID 28 on both of the 2 hyper-v hosts on my cluster. The mac address range in VNM is also dynamics.
Have you found any solution yet?
Monday, December 20, 2010 10:10 AMThis normally happens when two VM(having different ports on the Switch) try to get hold of the same MAC Address. If your MAC are being assigned dynamically in the VMs, trying changing the MAC Address (of one of the two) affected VMs, to a static (slightly different) MAC.

Thanks for your reply. There's only one VM running on each host and I am still getting the warning.

Tuesday, February 08, 2011 3:54 PMI just want to share this, since I did not find this answer anywhere else. I too was having this error message on my Hyper-V server. The odd thing is that everything had been working for almost a year, when all the sudden one afternoon connectivity to the server was sporatic and I was getting this message about once every 2 seconds. Bottom line is, it ended up to have nothing to do with the server. I had a network cable that had had the end pulled off of it where it plugged in to the computer in one of our computer labs (I work for a school) but was still plugged in to the switch on the other end. All the wires were touching each other causing a network loop. Once this was fixed, the server quit shooting up errors.
Tuesday, March 27, 2012 2:27 AMI just ran into this issue. I tried to set the vms I had to use static macs and this did not work. I powered off all the vms and unplugged the physical server nics from the network. I was still receiving errors at this point. I changed the MAC address of the physical NIC being reported in the error. The events then changed to report the new mac address. I deleted the virtual switch. The errors stopped immediately. I created a new virtual switch and assigned it back to all the vms. I have had no issues since.
Thursday, June 07, 2012 7:00 AMI appear to be having the same problem as well.

Just wanted to let you know that I just had the same issue, and it's only been around 15 mins since we seemingly got it resolved, but no messages are seen in the logs yet so that's a good sign.
What tried ALL sorts of things but what seems to have done the trick in the end was to power off all VM's, set them all to dynamic MAC, then uninstall the physical NIC from Device Manager, scan for hardware changes so it got installed again, delete the virtual network in HyperV manager and then create a new one, and then connect the vm's to the new virtual network.

Lumbago's solution worked like a charm. Been dealing with these events since November.
