Ticket #7922 (new defect)

Cannot use vmdk if UUID already exists

When creating a new machine that uses a copy of an existing vmdk another VM, an error says that it failed to open the hard disk - because the UUID already exists.

This is very annoying and inconvenient. Is there some other way to clone a vmdk so that it will not affect the guest OS ability to boot?
