Yes, have done it a few times.  If you need it to have a different IP address/name/license then bring up a new definition without a NIC, login via virt-manager.  For the IP address, search the registry for the current IP address and change the appropriate entries.  Use standard Windows utilities to change the description/name.  For the license, search for "Product" and select "View your Product ID", in that dialog there should be an option to change the product key.  Once done add the same NIC as the other definition had and restart.  This has worked all but once for me.  The one time it didn't, Windows discerned a network problem (IP address) and provided a way to fix it.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [CentOS] KVM clone

Hello everybody.

I have a simple question.

If I clone an existing KVM image of win server with static IP, the clone
will have the same IP?

It's probably stupid question, but I want to be sure.

I have a full updated centos 7 box.

Thank you in advance.
