We are using nova works with vCenter.

In openstack:

root@compute-vmware:~# nova list
+--------------------------------------+---------------------+---------+------------+-------------+------------------------------+
| ID                                   | Name                | Status  | Task State | Power State | Networks                     |
+--------------------------------------+---------------------+---------+------------+-------------+------------------------------+

+--------------------------------------+---------------------+---------+--

But in vCenter, the VM name is 706419af-39fe-4fbe-a81c-1ddf3f362c5e,b2bfce7d-8f91-48dd-8012-12efe007013c ,2d45de73-5da5-42f1-9461-a801a8a63e94.

Can we configure the VM name are vmware-vm-01,vmware-vm-vlan10-01,vmware-vm-vlan10-02, and make the name same as in Openstack ?
