If a rule in the inventory is in inactive state, you can edit the rule and assign a different host location to the hosts that match the rule criteria.
Before you begin
- 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.
- On the Deploy Rules tab, from the list of rules in the inventory select the rule that you want to edit and click Edit.
The Edit Deploy Rule dialog box appears.
- Select the Select host location page and select a host location for the hosts matching the rule.
If you do not want to select a host location
Select the Do not include a location check box.
If you want to select a specific location for the selected hosts
Select a data center, folder, or cluster as host location.
- Click OK.
