It turned out to be an issue with my dhcpd.conf file. Usually when I create a
VCL instance I use eth0 as private and eth1 as public, which is not the case
with my current system. As such I had the wrong mac addresses in the file.
Not sure why the CentOS image worked with this setup, but I suppose that's
irrelevant at this point.
