The MAC address associated with my samba share is null:

# nmblookup -A localhost

Looking up status of
        HOSTNAME        <00> -         B <ACTIVE>
        HOSTNAME        <03> -         B <ACTIVE>
        HOSTNAME        <20> -         B <ACTIVE>
        ..__MSBROWSE__. <01> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>
        MYSHARE         <00> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>
        MYSHARE         <1d> -         B <ACTIVE>
        MYSHARE         <1e> - <GROUP> B <ACTIVE>

    MAC Address = 00-00-00-00-00-00

How to set a non-null MAC address?

    You're looking at the virtual "localhost" interface. It doesn't have a MAC address since there is no media to access. – Hans-Martin Mosner Jan 6 at 15:41
