I guessed that Openstack didn't want to get duplicated name error from hypervisor(VMWare ), so openstack passed a UUID as the instance name to vmware.

But, In my client view, it didn't make sense. Because the UUID is very difficult to be recognized in the VCenter.

Alternative , Any expert have the solution to solve this problem. Can I pass the Instance name +UUID to vmware to workaround the problem and didn't break the openstack coding structure as well.

Or, can yo tell the Nova source code where i can re-write some code to penetrate Instance name +UUID to VMware?

This behavior is known and has been discussed and is documented as a LP Bug with an In-Progress commit.

Regrettably, I don't have a work around to offer but I wanted to at least share these resources as they may be helpful.
