Virtual Machine Cloning

I've enabled the Hyper-V role on a Windows 2008 Server Standard R2 box.

From there, I created a new VM named XXX-VIRT1.  Have joined this virtual machine to our domain and have successfully reached it via Remote Desktop from an offsite location.  Everything works as it should.

I must create 10 of these VM's; so, I decided to use the "Export / Import" method and followed a couple of TechNet documents to do so.  After using this process to create XXX-VIRT2, I had to change Computer Name, Static IP address, UserName, etc. to satisfy authentication of my Domain Controller.  Connecting to XXX-VIRT2 via Remote Desktop also worked.

However, now that XXX-VIRT2 has been successfully created and tested, when I started up XXX-VIRT1, I found that my connection to the Internet has been lost on this machine.  Also, connectivity to XXX-VIRT1 via Remote Desktop no longer works.

When browsing to the location of the .vhd file on the server box, I expected to see 2 files there:  XXX-VIRT1 and XXX-VIRT2.  However, nothing is there except New Virtual machine.vhd.  

Please advise

I presume you selected copy when importing to get new IDs.  Go into the settings of the existing VM in the Hyper-V MMC and verify the network settings (for the Virtualized Network Adapter) and make sure it is connecting to the NIC.  You can also check to see what VHD is being referenced.
