If you need a customization specification that is only slightly different from an existing specification, you can use the Customization Specification Manager to create a copy of the existing specification and modify it. For example, you might need to change the IP address or the administrator password.


You must have at least one customization specification.


  1. From the vSphere Web Client Home inventory page, select Policies and Profiles > Customization Specification Manager.
  2. Right-click a specification and select Duplicate.


A new specification is created. If the specification does not appear in the Name column, refresh the vSphere Web Client.
