Under what conditions does the UUID of VM changes? Consider, a license is based on the UUID of the VM. What happens if the VM is paused, suspended, re-instantiated using the snapshot or live migrated. Does the UUID stays the same in all these cases?

Thanks, Harish

The UUID should remain the same whether you restart or suspend. I am not sure what you mean by re-instantiated using the snapshot. If you have terminated the VM and bring it up,then it will be a new UUID.
