I think you can:
1) Create new host entry
2) Clone the system
3) uninstall the client on the cloned server being offline
4) install client on the cloned server being online
Step 1) can be placed anywhere in the sequence before step 4. Other
steps are sequential.
That should preserve the original VM but create a new one properly
