Hi,
I have cloned a RHEL 6.5 VM and I am having problems as I get in-frequent ping responses.   I am very familiar with the changes that are required after cloning below are the steps that have worked in the past for me;

rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
vim /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth1 (change MAC address)
reboot VM

The message  I get when I run 'service network restart'

Shuttding down interface eth1:      OK
Shutting down loopback interface OK
Bringing up loopback interface           OK

Bring up interface eth1: Determining if ip address 192.168.70.140 is already in use for device eth1...  OK

Ping sent from my PC

We normally zero erase the config file and let it repopulate so eth0 is correct.

Also are you using VMware Tools and VMXNET3 interface

are you using static ip or DHCP ip on the cloned VM?

Maybe there is another machine using same IP and you have a IP conflict?

You can run "ifconfig" to check the ip on this machine, shut it down, and ping its ip from another machine, see if this IP is still pingable.

I normally install VMware Tools and VMXnet 3 after I can get the IPs working.

I will install VMware Tools and comeback to you.

Using static,  no ip conflict to be found.

I get the below when trying to install VmWare Tools.

tar: vmware-tools-distrib/INSTALL : Cannot create symlink to './doc/INSTALL'

Never had this before.
