We use a template to deploy VMs. The VMs are normally Windows 2008 R2 Data Center that have been setup and run Sysprep on and then Converted to a template and then we deploy from that Template. What we have been seeing is duplicate UUID's on the VMDK. Is there a way to avoid this happening or do we just need to change the UUID each time we deploy a VM.
