You do not need to schedule downtime to create an esxi host profile.  When you apply the host profile you will need downtime.

Please mark helpful or correct answers.

Yes. correct. Agree with above response. While creating profile you can create without any downtime but while applying host must be in maintenance mode.

Refer:VMware KB: Applying a Host Profile to a host or cluster

If it is useful, plz mark answer as correct or helpful.
