Cloud Builder configures the VMkernels of the ESXi hosts and adds them to the domain. You update the user name and password in the customizations for the hosts to be compliant as the host profile does not contain credentials information.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Virtual Appliance Management Interface (VAMI) of the vCenter Server appliance.
    1. Open a Web browser and go to https://lax01m01vc01.lax01.rainpole.local:5480.
    2. Log in using the following credentials.
      Setting Value
      User name root
      Password vcenter_server_root_password
  2. Update the host profile.
    1. From the Home menu, select Policies and Profiles and click Host Profiles.
    2. Right-click lax01-m01hp-mgmt01, and select Copy settings from Host.
    3. Select lax01m01esx01.lax01.rainpole.local and click OK.
  3. Edit the lax01-m01hp-mgmt01 host profile customizations.
    1. From the Home menu, select Policies and Profiles and click Host Profiles.
    2. Right-click lax01-m01hp-mgmt01, and select Edit Host Customizations.

    5. Click Finish.
  4. Verify compliance and remediate the hosts.
    1. On the Host Profiles page, click lax01-m01hp-mgmt01 and click the Monitor tab.
