Hi,

Using DHCP Option 012 to send a host name. This feature allows you to include the host name in the DHCP packet sent to the DHCP server. This is disabled by default.

Nawals​  Have you ever deployed bunch of hosts and all of them accepted the configs except for a single host didn't accept the DVS configs and comes only with the Standard switch other hosts same host profile accepted the DVS ?

I deployed and configured but is not like this and don't thing the host profile work like that. if you are using host profile make sure configurations should be identical and apply to all hosts to get same configs to all hosts and get valid compliance. If you are looking for single host not accept the DVS configs and come with standard switch with same host profile, Its not worked and give invalid configuration. In this case you need to create one more profile for that host and apply it.
