Resending cause somehow the format got screwed up.

ok, this worked like a charm but I did some changes.
Maybe you want to update the README on
failed with an error:
Cannot set value previousProperties;macspoof=^(true|false)$ to key
UserDefinedVMProperties. Invalid syntax, user defined VM properties
specification should conform to
I changed that to
engine-config -s "UserDefinedVMProperties=macspoof=(true|false)"
like it is defined in http://www.ovirt.org/Engine_config_examples
which was inserted with no error.
CustomDeviceProperties also inserted like
engine-config -s CustomDeviceProperties=
so both true/false options could be available.
VM option indeed takes precedence over VNIC option.
You should also take notice that setting macspoof=false or
ifacemacspoof=false does the opposite of at least what I expected.
I had to apply with either macspoof=true or ifacemacspoof=true to
The README also has that the other way.
Either the README has to be changed or the options could be renamed to
something like disable_macspoof_filter and disable_ifacemacspoof_filter
