Export Host Profile "Individual Host" Customization - Regular schedule ( via PowerCLI , GUI or Other )

Hi All,

I have a requirement to export out Host Profile "Individual Host" Customization in regular interval. Lets say monthly or quarterly.

I have looked at PowerCLI option and dont see any cmd that can export out. There is no schedule task option in GUI too.

Is there any other way to achieve this?

Thank you.
