Yes you can change the MAC address of an interface, if that would solve the problem. While the interface is in down state issue the command:

ifconfig ETH01 hw 00:11:22:33:44:55

You can modify the script


and in line 57 change this

      ifconfig $INTERFACENAME:$A $IP netmask $NETMASK broadcast `getbroadcast $IP $NETMASK` $STATUS 2>/dev/null >/dev/null

into this

      ifconfig $INTERFACENAME:$A hw 00:11:22:33:44:55 $IP netmask $NETMASK broadcast `getbroadcast $IP $NETMASK` $STATUS 2>/dev/null >/dev/null
