Before you can apply the profile to a host you need to attach the host to the profile.

You can attach a profile to a host from the host's context menu in the Hosts and Clusters inventory view.

1

In the Host and Clusters view, select the host to which you want to attach a profile.

2

Right-click the host and select Host Profile > Manage Profile.

Note

If no host profiles exist in your inventory, a dialog appears asking if you want to create and attach the host to this profile.

3

In the Attach Profile dialog, select the profile to attach to the host and click OK.

The host profile is updated in the Summary tab of the host.
