Let's say I'm cloning a virtual machine containing a Linux server.
What would you advice to change in the clone? I know - it's kind of vague and depends on what services ware installed on linux but maybe you can throw some ideas?
Right now I change:
- MAC addresses of virtual interfaces [in fact VMware does it for me]
- re-generate SSH certificates [including host certificates - rm /etc/ssh/ssh_host*; dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server in the Debian world]
- change the hostname
