For getting the logs of the Host Profile execution you should login into the ESXi you are trying to apply and search for this: /var/log/syslog.log.
After that paste the output here so we can help you!
Sorry my bad.
Could you please share the detail of which are the configurations you are applying on that Host Profile. Checked the logs and they do not have some much information.
I'm trying to configure the following options:
Syslog.global.logDir (value specified by user in host customizations).
Host Profile Log Configuration (info).
DCUI keyboard (UK).
Date and time configuration (uk.pool.ntp.org).
Virtual machine portgroup.
Host portgroup (Management network).
Service configuration (all selected set to start/stop with host).
Security (set root password and add Active Directory users to local Admin group).
Host Acceptance Level Configuration (PartnerSupported).
Active Directory configuration.
Firewall configuration (bunch of default rules configured to true).
I hope this is sufficient.
Okay i can see you are applying bunch of different configurations. I would recommend you to try to save the host profile disabling section by section. Maybe there is an issue on one of the features you are trying to configure.
I know this is not like a specific solution but as the host profile does not have so many categories selected maybe that could be the resolution instead of waiting for somebody that faced the same issue.
Hey, hope you are doing fine?
Can you tell us more about your vCenter infra?
How many vCSA's do you have? are they linked?
Which user are you trying to run this with? have you tried with email@example.com?
Have you tried creating a host profile from a host and editing it? does the error reproduce that way?
It may be silly but: have you tried with a different browser?
Hi nachogonzalez, I'm well thank you, I hope you are too.
I have a single vCSA, no other linked instances.
This host profile was indeed created from a host and edited, so we know that doesn't work, unfortunately.
I just tried with the administrator account in the vCenter SSO domain and also using a different browser. Sadly neither made a difference.
Good, and what happens if you create a new profile from scatch?
I don't believe that's possible, a new profile must be created (extracted) from an existing host configuration.
I would recommend you to try to save the host profile disabling section by section. Maybe there is an issue on one of the features you are trying to configure.
Lalegre Unfortunately this hasn't worked. I disabled everything but the configuration of the ntpd service and it failed. I tried the same thing, enabling nothing other than the DCUI keyboard configuration, and that also failed. Likewise for a few other lone configurations which I tried.Thanks for the suggestion though!
Oh sorry to hear that. Are you using any special character in the values or in the name of the Host Profile?
Could you restart vCenter? Also could yo try to create the Host Profile but from another host?
Yeah, this has changed on vSphere 7.
are you using the same host as reference hosts?
have you tried restarting managment agents?
