Device eth0 is not present after cloning RHEL/CentOS in VMWare

#ifup eth0
Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialisation

Easy fix:

Remove the networking interface rules file, it will be regenerated

# rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Update your interface configuration file

# vim /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0

Remove the MACADDR and  the UUID entries

Save and exit the file

Restart the networking service

# service network restart
