Since you moved your virtual machine, you wouldn´t have to create a new
UUID and no new MAC address. This is only required if you copy a virtual
machine and if you want both up at the same time.

This is because you changed the MAC address. If you would have left it
at the original value, the network would have started right away with
the old config.
