The Desired State Configuration feature helps you to seamlessly provision and manage your vCenter Server configurations across geographies and different domains. It provides an automated and centrally managed mechanism to ensure that all the vCenter Server instances are compliant with the desired configuration.
- Create profiles
- You must first create a desired configuration, also referred to as a profile, from one of the vCenter Server instances. You can either extract the configuration from a vCenter Server, or import the configuration from a JSON file, and use this profile as a configuration template to configure other vCenter Server instances. You can create multiple profiles with the desired configuration.
- Log in to the VMC Console at https://vmc.vmware.com.
- Click Desired State Configuration.
- Follow the on-screen prompts to create profiles, assign profiles to vCenter Server instances, and run compliance checks.
