Re: [Xen-users] Trying to clone one client to another host, but would like to configure the LVM disc aforehand

Thank-you Pasi.  I have done this. What about the MAC address?

vif=[ 'mac=00:16:3e:37:3f:00', ]

Will changing this line change the hardware address the guest will see.
( I know that I have to update the files in /etc/sysconfig/network etc).
