You can add a host that does not correspond to any vSphere Auto Deploy rule to the list of deployed hosts by using the Add to Inventory wizard.


  1. On the vSphere Web Client Home page, click Auto Deploy.
    By default, only the Administrator role has privileges to use the vSphere Auto Deploy service.
  2. On the Discovered Hosts tab, select one or more hosts that you want to provision with an image profile, host profile, and location.
  3. Select Add to Inventory.
    The Add to Inventory wizard appears.
