Error message might appear when creating linked clones (1007710)
When creating linked clones of virtual machines, the following error message might appear in the VI Client:
The MAC address (xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx) of vm2 conflicts with MAC assigned to vm1.
You can ignore this error message.
Linked clones inherit the MAC address of the parent clone. VirtualCenter automatically detects this situation and generates a new MAC address when the linked clone is powered on.
