If the configuration of the host from which a profile was created changes, you can update the local profile so that the local host configuration matches the host's configuration.

After you create a host profile, you can make incremental updates to the profile. You can make updates using two methods:

Make the configuration changes to a host in the vSphere Web Client, and copy that host's settings to the profile. The settings within the existing profile are updated to match those of the host.

Update the profile directly by editing the host profile.

Editing the host profile can be comprehensive and provide more options. Copying settings from a host allows you to validate the configuration before rolling it out to other hosts that are attached to the profile.


Navigate to the host profile.


Click Copy Settings from Host.


Select the host from which you want to copy the configuration settings.


Click OK.
