Re-registering a linked clone in VirtualCenter changes the BIOS UUID of the linked clone (1013505)
Also, when a host is disconnected from and then reconnected to VirtualCenter, the BIOS UUIDs of the virtual machines on that host are changed.
After unregistering a linked clone, restart VirtualCenter before re-registering the linked clone.
If a host is disconnected, restart VirtualCenter before reconnecting the host to preserve BIOS UUID of that host's virtual machines.
