You can configure a virtual machine to always keep the same UUID, even when it is moved or copied. When a virtual machine is set to always keep the same UUID, you are not prompted when a virtual machine is moved or copied.


Power off the virtual machine.


  1. Open the virtual machine configuration (.vmx) file in a text editor.
  2. Add the uuid.action property and set it to keep.
    For example: uuid.action = "keep"
