It just occurred to me that when running Ubuntu or any other virtual machine OS using Oracle VirtualBox in a lab scenario and you need to install multiple copies of the same OS, it would make sense to create cloned copies of the original VM. VirtualBox does come with a cloning feature to enable you clone the VM but an issue will always arise which is duplicate UUID of the hard disks.
In this post, I will show us how to clone a Windows Server 2008 R2 Virtual Machine using VirtualBox. The version of VirtualBox I am working with is v4.2.10. Steps: – Launch the Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager – Right-Click on the VM you intend to clone and click Clone… – Enter a new name for the clone VM and check the box “Reinitialize the MAC address for all network cards“.
