Esxi generate new mac address

How to properly clone a Nested ESXi VM?

My understanding was that each new VM should receive a unique, or at least random, MAC Address during the restore process. Could anyone please clarify what should be happening here?

I don't have access to the original source VM at the moment so I can't check to see if it's MAC is the same as the restored versions. Can you please send the screenshot to our support team where all restored VMs have the same MAC address?

No complaints there, but we've worked through a few things and I'd like some forum comment on what we've seen. My last email to Support sums up my understanding if it's correct , so I'd like to receive comment back on what seems to me an issue with Veeam's MAC address management during certain restore scenarios. That, or MAC address generation should be better taken care of automatically to avoid potential conflicts for a given restore scenario. I think for most people that option is used to restore a VM to an isolated environment for testing or verification.

I can't see a scenario where I would restore a VM with different settings in a location where a conflicting MAC addresses would even be an issue. It seems as if you are trying to use VeeamZip to create a pseudo vCenter clone process. This assumption on my part is based on restoring a VeeamZiped VM mulitple times. I think it would be a fair bit slower though. Thanks Markus.
