my Questions :

1- i faced IP address issue with the new one so re assigned the IP manually through the OS .. is there anothery way to solve this issue from the begining or this is how it should go?
2- I want to do another Export for this restored system after some modfication on application level  but  iwant to imorte it to the same host .. will that make any problemfor me? i am just renaming the virtual machine name from inventory so the internal folders as it is.. howerver if no issue to keep both systems on same host i want to keep it simple process
3-my Application vendor is asking for shared (RDM) LUN between the 2 virtual machines for os cluster purpose  ,, can you advise step by step how to do the RDM?
