If mksimachine is used without a MAC address, it fails
saying 'MAC address is assigned to another client.'. I
assume it is reading that MAC as blank, and since there
are other nodes ( created via mksirange ) with blank
MAC addresses, it failes.

[root@testcluster clubmask]# mksimachine

MAC address is assigned to another client.
