Set up VMware host profiles


Recommended Posts


First of all, yes, an administrator can set a host profile and copy the settings to other profiles. As for the workflow, it would look as follows:

  1. Configure an ESXi host that you use as a reference.
  2. Extract the configuration from your ESXi host to the host profile
  3. Deploy new ESXi hosts you want to have the shared configuration
  4. Import host profile's configuration to new ESXi host 
  5. Customize the configuration (hostnames, IP addresses that have to be unique for every host).
