This is a known issue and there is no resolution as of now. To workaround this issue, change UUID of VMDK by ESXi command line.
Step to change UUID:-
Login to ESXi through Putty and go to path where virtual machine is stored.
# cd \vmfs\volumes\DatastoreName\VMName
To identify the UUID currently assigned to disk:-
# vmkfstools -J getuuid <vmname>.vmdk
To change the UUID of disk:-
# vmkfstools -J setuuid <vmname>.vmdk
