A host is booting with a different ESXi image, host profile, or folder location than the one specified in the rules.

Problem

A host is booting with a different ESXi image profile or configuration than the image profile or configuration that the rules specify. For example, you change the rules to assign a different image profile, but the host still uses the old image profile.

Cause

After the host has been added to a vCenter Server system, the boot configuration is determined by the vCenter Server system. The vCenter Server system associates an image profile, host profile, or folder location with the host.

Solution

  • Use the Test-DeployRuleSetCompliance and Repair-DeployRuleSetCompliance PowerCLI cmdlets to reevalute the rules and to associate the correct image profile, host profile, or folder location with the host.
