hyper-v vms losing rdp connection

I have a few hyper v images.  My main box has a network card, my vms have a network card.  They all have static ips with a gateway as my router.  They are not on the domain.  For some reason, one seems to lose connection on rdp every so often.  I had one vm that I turned off and used as a template.  I copied and pasted it two times and created two other vms.  So now I had one turned off, and two copies.  

This happens even if one is turned off.  Is this because of a mac address issue?  Can I fix it?

You need to run NEWSID on the VMs.

Make sure names have been changed as well and that the IPs are different from each other

Thanks, I would like to download it, but everything I see on the web says that it has been retired.  Do you know where I can download it?

Thanks, that looks like some site with a ton of viruses.  I didn't see a legit download.

Can I change the name if I already made it a domain controller?  Basically I am making sharepoint vms with sql server 2008, its own domain, visual studio 2010, and sharepoint not configured.  I wanted to just be able to clone them for dev purposes.  I was hoping they could all have the same domain names and just not see each other since they would just be an ip someplace. I don't want to have to install everything from scratch each time.

The reason why newsid is retired is because it is no longer supported on windows 2008 and windows 7. Why is it a bad idea to use newsid on 2008? VSS aka Shadow Copy doesn't play nice with it and it causes it to break. To change the sid properly you need to run sysprep.
