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
