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.

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.

Procedure

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