  • Refresh Disks in the Hosts -> Disks doesn't discover VMDK disks or RDM disks.
  • The following script via VmWare PowerCLI indicates that multiple disks have the same UUID.

get-vm | Get-HardDisk | % {
  New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{
        VMName = $_.parent.name
        Path = $_.extensiondata.backing.filename
        UUID = $_.extensiondata.backing.uuid
  }
} | fl

Example of the output with no file redirection:
