Some of the hosts in the vSphere Auto Deploy inventory might not be compliant with the active deploy rules. To verify that one or more ESXi hosts are compliant with the active rule set, you must check the host associations compliance.

Prepare your system and install the Auto Deploy Server. For more information, see Prepare Your System for vSphere Auto Deploy.

Create a vSphere Auto Deploy rule. See Create a Deploy Rule.

Activate a vSphere Auto Deploy rule. See Activate, Deactivate, and Reorder Deploy Rules.

On the vSphere Web Client Home page, click Auto Deploy.

By default, only the Administrator role has privileges to use the vSphere Auto Deploy service.

Check the host associations compliance

The Check Host Associations Compliance window displays the current status of the host and whether the host is compliant with the active rule set. You can view the currently assigned image profile, host profile, host location, script bundle, and the associations that will take effect after a remediation of the host. You can assign a script bundle to a host only by using PowerCLI cmdlets.
