Hello,

Which disk type should I select for SCSI Controller such that I can change the virtual disk UUID later. The guest OS to be used is Windows 2012R2

What do you plan to achieve? AFAIK by looking at the qm man page [0] (search for `qm set` and the --scsi parameter) you can set the serial and the WWN but no UUID.

Isn't is the case that there are no UUIDs for disks themselves but the partitions will have one?
