Issues with applying vmware profiles
Posted on 2014-07-15
Now that I have configured a host to the ideal configurations and about to be done with my STIG work I would like to take the profile and apply it to all the other hosts to avoid having to make 160+ changes to the configuration on 18 other hosts. However when I attach the profile to the new host it states addition customization is required. Now that I am thinking about it I wonder if it is because the profile is generated from a host that is still 5.1 and the new server is 5.5. I can test that theory on my other new server I will just install the same version as the current profile is generated from. The three fields it asks for are
IP address for VMKernel
When I fill these out and click next it states "cannot validate host customizations for host; null"
Vcenter - 5.5 Build 1750781
Host build the profile was generated from - 5.1 build 1065491
Host the profile is being attached too - 5.5 build 1623387
