You can import a profile from a file in the VMware profile format (.vpf).
About this task
When a host profile is exported, administrator and user profile passwords are not exported. This is a security measure and stops passwords from being exported in plain text when the profile is exported. You will be prompted to re-enter the values for the password after the profile is imported and the password is applied to a host.
- Navigate to the Host Profiles view.
- Click the Import Host Profile icon ().
- Click Browse to browse for the VMware Profile Format file to import
- Enter the Name and Description for the imported Host Profile, and click OK.
The imported profile appears in the profile list.
