How to specify/query the UUID of a cloned VM using the createClones method?


My client program is required to keep track of the UUID associated with a cloned VM for future use. If I use VI SDK directly, I can specify the newly cloned VM's UUID using the VirtualMachineConfigSpec's uuid property. However, I do not see any configuration options in the parameters to VSC's createClones API method to do the same. Is there any way I can either specify or even query the UUID of the VM that the createClones method creates?
