    Description

      uuid is not unique identifier for VMs, so Zabbix should use instanceUUID for host name.

      "VirtualCenter-specific 128-bit UUID of a virtual machine, represented as a hexademical string. This identifier is used by VirtualCenter to uniquely identify all virtual machine instances, including those that may share the same SMBIOS UUID."
