Is it possible to disable or stop a service from starting via the host profile?
I tried it under
adding a service and leaving turn on service to uncheck
reapplied profile to host/ rebooted but the service is still started
Hey, hope you are doing fine:
Check here https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-67-host-profiles-guide.pdf
Select Edit Host Profile, and click Security and Services.
Also, to apply the host profile keep in mind that the host should be in maintenance mode.
