You can import a profile from a file in the VMware profile format (.vpf).

Note

When a host profile is exported, administrator passwords are not exported. This is a security measure and stops administrator passwords from being exported in plain text when the profile is exported. You will be prompted to re-enter the values for the password after the profile is imported and the password is applied to a host.
