I'm testing the ability of vCenter server 6.5 to export/import ovf templates.
As requirements, I want to keep the same BIOS UUID and MAC address of nics when I export/import a VM.
In the export form, I tick the checkbox for exporting UUID and MAC address. When I inspect the exported ovf file, I only see the UUID and MAC are not exported. When I import the OVF (after having deleted the VM), a new bios UUID is used (UUID in OVF file is ignored?) and MAC address are regenerated (obvious since not present in OVF file). So have I misunderstood those concepts or is it a bug?
Thanks for help
