You can configure a virtual machine to always receive a new UUID when it is copied or moved so that you are not prompted when you move or copy the virtual machine.

Before you begin

Power off the virtual machine.

Procedure

  1. Open the virtual machine configuration (.vmx) file in a text editor.
  2. Add the uuid.action property to the .vmx file and set it to create.

    For example: uuid.action = "create"
