Bug Description

While trying to commission a node, I got the following:

=== Wed, 16 Apr 2014 00:27:22 +0000: successfully enlisted to 'http://91.189.94.35/MAAS/api/1.0/nodes/' without hostname
{"mac_addresses": ["One or more MAC addresses is invalid."]}=============================================

This node has actually been commissioned previously; successfully,
even. The only change I've made since then is swapping PXE from an
on-board 1Gb NIC (eth0) to a 10Gb NIC (eth2).

This is with maas 1.4+bzr1693+dfsg-0ubuntu2.3~ctools0 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Right, so, after tcpdumping the traffic between the node and the region controller, I figueed out the problem. When it says invalid, what MAAS means is 'is a duplicate'. I deleted the old version of the node (from when it was PXE booting with eth0) in MAAS and the node was able to successfully declare and commission.

While, once again, there's a element of user error in this bug, at the very least, it'd be nice if the error message was more informative (and didn't consider a 400 response a 'success').

I see another problem here. The script on the node shouldn't say "successfully enlisted" when the enlistment request fails.
