but a combination works too, e.g.

vif         = [ 'mac=00:16:3E:5A:A4:A5, ip=' ]

The Problem if you do _not_ set a mac-adress in domu-config, the
mac-adress for this domu changes on each startup.

and to these topic:
.... All of the students VMs will be copies (or using qcow2 backing
file) of  a base image so will be identical to save space and setup

Create your "Master-Image" as LVM-Volume and give those domus a snapshot
from this volume. Since lvm supports copy-on-write this is really cool,
e-g- for a web-server-cluster or anything where a "golden-image" and the
guests have only minor changes... .

Just my 2cents
