Change UUID for VMDK -Virtual Disk

When you deploy machine from template, template as well as deployed virtual machine
will have same UUID for vmdk files (New discovery). It will throw warning message

Incase if UUID has to be changed please use the following command

/usr/sbin/vmkfstools-J setuuid $path_to_vm/vmname.vmdk

this worked for me using a vmdk with VirtualBox 4.2:
vboxmanage internalcommands sethduuid mydisk.vmdk
