When you create a virtual machine that you intend to distribute to other users, you should configure the virtual machine for maximum compatibility with all expected host systems. Users might be limited in their ability to make changes in a virtual machine so that it is compatible with their host systems.

Each virtual machine has a universal unique identifier (UUID). The UUID is generated when you initially power on the virtual machine.
