I run a number of virtual servers on my network and I want to be able to easily clone base installations of Ubuntu Server. I use the VBoxManage command to clone the actual hard disk and I then create a new profile for my VM and copy over the settings of the original VM.
However, when I boot into the cloned VM, there seems to be a network problem. When I issue a PING I get the message "
Network unreachable". I traced it down to the fact that the virtual network card of the cloned VM has a different MAC address then the original VM. When I copy the MAC address the clone seems to work fine.
How can I have the cloned VM have it's own MAC address?
