We move catalogs around all the time, but I'd guess we are always restarting
minivend anyway because something "bigger" is happening.

Are you saying you want same catalog on multiple physical boxes with the
same ip address?  I think there is email in archive from Mike H about
doing that.  Still, I'm not clear on what is a "virtual machine"?  An 
instance of an entire machine (eg 10,000 virtual machines on S/390 - drool)
that amounts to another box or just an IP alias?

What do the logs say for errors?
