The replica VM cannot be powered on. The following message appears:
Failed to start the virtual machine. Module DevicePowerOn power on failed. Could not set up "macAddress" for ethernet0. Invalid MAC address specified. [MAC_address] is not an allowed static Ethernet address. It conflicts with VMware reserved MACs.
