What you meant when you said: "make sure that you do not START the clone on the same network"?
Warning: Before you power on the virtual machine clone, understand the following:
Virtual machines clones are issued a new Universally Unique IDentifier (UUID). This affects user scripts and API calls to the UUID of the virtual machine.
Virtual machines clones are issued new MAC addresses for attached virtual network adapters. This may have an effect on software or licensing that is sensitive to MAC address changes.
Guest operating systems for virtual machine clones may share computer names and static IP addresses with their original counterparts. Be sure to account for this prior to power-on.
