NAKIVO Backup & Replication replicates almost all VM properties, including the MAC address. However, if this MAC address is out of standard VMware range (00:50:56:XX:XX:XX), you may not be able to power on the replica VM and will get the following message:

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.

The workaround is described in the VMware knowledge base.
