You are responsible for managing a growing vSphere environment. You want to implement host profiles as a tool to maintain a consistent ESXi host configuration.
- Create a new host profile from a reference ESXi host.
- Use the profile to determine any inconsistencies in the configuration of the reference host and a second host.
- Use the profile to change the configuration of the second host to make it consistent with the reference host.
- Use the profile to verify that the changes were made successfully.
- Host profile name: Profile-02
- Reference ESXi host: host-01.lab.local
- Target ESXi host: host-02.lab.local
Objective: 5.1 Implement and Maintain Host Profiles
- Chapter 9 - Host Profiles – vCenter Server with Host Profiles

- Right-click host-01.lab.local and select Host Profile > Create Profile from Host.
- Name the profile Profile-02.
- Navigate to Management > Host Profiles.
- Right-click Profile-2 and select Attach Host.
- In the wizard, select host-02.lab.local and click Attach.
- in the wizard, select Inventory > Hosts and Clusters and select host-02.lab.local.
- Click the Host Profile tab > Check for compliance.
- Wait for the results. If the results indicate that the host is not compliant with the profile, then use Apply Profile to change the target ESXi host to match the profile. If necessary, use vMotion to migrate running VMs to other ESXi hosts.
