To bring a host to the desired state as specified in the profile, apply the profile to the host.

You can apply a profile to a host from:
  • Host Profiles main view
  • Host's context menu
  • Cluster's Profile Compliance tab

If the profile is not applied, or configured to what is specified in the profile, it will cause the compliance status for the profile to fail the next time a compliance check is performed. You fix this by applying the profile to the host.
