However, I can not know the IP address before it has been allocated by
DHCP service. So, I can not scp my applications outside into new cloned
VM. Have any solution to bind a given IP address to a VM instance?

As said above, I can not login VM instance and change the network
configuration. Also, I can not get the new-allocated IP address if I
want to login the VM and do some jobs, right?

Thanks again,
