Changing the MAC address of the VM

Guys,

We might need to restore a Linux VM (using Veeam).  As you know, once a VM is restored, the network interface would not work due to a different MAC address.  In the past, we would log in via the login console of that VM and update the new MAC address in some configuration files.  In this case, our Login screen doesn't work (it just have a Centos logo without the login prompt).

Is there a procedure/edit route to force the restored machine to reuse the old original MAC address?

This is probably the solution just found.

If you do a full VM restore using Veeam, it does restore the original MAC address.
