You use host profiles to manage the configuration of a specific host cluster. You noticed that when checking for compliance, it complains a lot about differences in locally attached drives and private iSCSI LUNs. You want to implement a plan to work around the issue by editing the host profile and disabling checks for specific items.
- Disable host profile checking for the PSP and SATP configuration for NMP devices, PSA device configuration, and Discovered Targets items.
