Default vbox gentoo guest mac address issue

Hello,

I have running gentoo vbox guest image. I've made its clone using VBoxManage
clonehd ... and setup new vbox guest using this system copy. Everything is
same except MAC address. When starting system from this cloned image I've got
an eth0 failure. It looks like the original MAC address is somewhere cached in
the cloned system. I've googled how to reset this cached MAC address but
without luck :-(

Please, could you help me?

Thanks

Pat

OK, last try solved the issue :-) Edit MAC address for eth0
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and comment other eth interfaces.
