"I'm running a virtual machine with the hostname, the IP address and the VEID 102 on, and I want to back up that machine and restore it on

"We can restore it on with no changes (e.g. same IP address and hostname), but in that case we must stop the VM on because otherwise the IP address and hostname would conflict; the second possibility is to restore it on, but change some parameters like the IP address and hostname with the vzctl set command - in this case we can run both VMs (the original one on and the clone on at the same time. This is a great method to clone VMs."
