I want to make a clone from a productive CT to use it as an independent staging server. I made a vzdump Backup of the production CT and afterwards used this backup file as ostemplate when creating the new CT.
Now I changed the hostname and the ip address of the new CT. I see that the new CT has the same MAC address as the original CT.

When I want to assign a new MAC address, what is the proper way, since MAC addresses must be unique?

Just delete the MAC, it will be auto-gen on save.
