12 Jan 15 hpvm guest vlan reconfiguration after a clone

A hpvm 6.2 guest was cloned from one host to another and would not come on network.

hpvmnet -S prod

Port    Port         Port     Untagged Number of    Active VM    Tagged
Number  State        Adapter  VLANID   Reserved VMs              VLANIDs
======= ============ ======== ======== ============ ============ =============
1       Reserved     avio_lan 101      1                         none
2       Available    unknown  653      0                         none
3       Active       avio_lan 38       1            working     none
4       Active       avio_lan 400      1            nonworking     none

The problematic guest was guest 4 (p4)

We want to configure it to avio_lan 38

## The portid:4: is from the Port Number Column of the hpvmnet output

hpvmnet -S prod -u portid:4:vlanid:38

[Port Configuration Details]
Port    Port         Port     Untagged Number of    Active VM    Tagged
Number  State        Adapter  VLANID   Reserved VMs              VLANIDs
======= ============ ======== ======== ============ ============ =============
1       Reserved     avio_lan 101      1                         none
2       Available    unknown  653      0                         none
3       Active       avio_lan 38       1            working     none
4       Active       avio_lan 38       1            newhost      none
