Cannot add host with interface mac address in e3:xx:xx:xx
When I try to add or modify a host with a network interface in e3:xx:xx
I received message : "Some of the interfaces are invalid. Please check the table below."
In the interface, I see this message : "must be a unicast MAC address"
It's a Dell PowerEdge Mac Address

Well technically speaking it is a multicast MAC address: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicast_address#Ethernet
However I agree that this should probably be just a UI warning and not hardcoded in the database checks.
WORKAROUND: Edit lib/net/validations.rb method multicast_mac? and always return
false in there until we implement a React component that will do warning properly so we can drop the check.
