Cloning a CentOS VM requires network modification

When cloning a CentOS VM the networking will need to be reconfigured. First of all you will probably need to edit the IP settings in ifcfg-eth0:

vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

But even after this you won’t be able to ping anything on the network. We have made a change to the network so restart the network service. Restarting the network service will return the following error:  “Bringing up interface eth0: Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.”

Device Eth0 does not exist
