Host Profile issue on Esxi 5.5 U3a

Recently applied host profile on my new host added in cluster.but always getting few errors while doing compliance check..

Option ScratchConfig.ConfiguredScratchLocation doesn't match the specified criteria status is non-compliant  

i can see config is okay,host rebooted but no luck ?

and on another host i am getting error..

Failed to execute command to configure or query coredump partition. -status is unknown


please advise how this can be resolved, as i have single host profile in my cluster and it is compliant for rest 6 host but not on 2 recently added in cluster .

hi there BSD

Scratch Partition:
vim-cmd hostsvc/advopt/view ScratchConfig.CurrentScratchLocation
If the value is null, i.e. value = “”

esxcli system coredump partition set –partition=“device_path_name“
 
so it should be:
esxcli system coredump partition set –partition=“”
to Activate it
esxcli system coredump partition set –enable true
 
to verify it:
esxcli system coredump partition list

2. Option ScratchConfig.ConfiguredScratchLocation doesn't match the specified criteria status is non-compliant
