Host Profiles question

Jump to solution

Hi,

My plan s to create the forst ESX host and configure the vswitches..etc and then create a Host profile of it.

My question, is when do I change the host name and IP on the ESX host I plan on applying the profile too?

You will need to do a very basic build on each of the other hosts, so that they can be added to the VC - you will not be able to use host profiles on the hosts until they are added to the VC - so these are manually specified at build time. the rest can come down from the template (You could .. if you really wanted to . . get additional storage ports and any other VMkernel ports to be assigned IP by DHCP)

One day I will virtualise myself . . .

You will be prompted for host-specific info when applying the host profile.
