VirtualBox: SIOCSIFADDR: No such device ethX after clone of a VM

Today i cloned a VM from Virtualbox which had a Debian Instance running inside. Interestingly directly when i launched it the first time it did not detect the network card

SIOCSIFADDR: No such device eth0

Only after this hint in ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php i found a clue that debian has some udev rule, which had the old MAC Address of the previous VM cached. In my case i deleted

/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Problem resolved after deleting the file, and rebooting.
