XO Users - A clever Tip!

If you're restoring a VM from backup for testing purposes, it create a NIC device with the same MAC address, but it uses a different physical device.
So in my case, I have 4 physical NICs on my server, and a specific NIC dedicated to a private LAN. The VM using this NIC has a DHCP server running on it.
Obviously this can cause major issues.
So copy the MAC address, delete the NIC device, and re-add it as a new Device with the required MAC address.
Avoid those annoying DHCP issues!
