In the course of talking to Verizon I discovered the off the cuff 
shell/awk loop I used to re-write all my config files at once had a typo 
and created the same exact mac in all config files.

stopped all containers, wrote the intended _non_duplicate_ macs in all 
files and restarted all containers and everything is fine.

minute to bump past the first couple layers to get to a person whose 
time was more valuable for me to waste.
