With basic host management workflows, you can put a host into maintenance mode, make a host exit maintenance mode, move a host to a folder or a cluster, and reload data from a host.

Enter maintenance mode

Puts the host into maintenance mode. You can cancel the task.

Exit maintenance mode

Exits maintenance mode. You can cancel the task.

Move host to cluster

Moves an existing host into a cluster. The host must be part of the same datacenter, and if the host is part of a cluster, the host must be in maintenance mode.

Move host to folder

Moves a host into a folder as a standalone host. The host must be part of a ClusterComputeResource in the same datacenter and the host must be in maintenance mode.

Reload host

Forces vCenter Server to reload data from a host.
