You can create a rule with the New-DeployRule PowerCLI cmdlet and add it to the rule set with Add-DeployRule or Set-DeployRuleSet. The rule should have a pattern that matches one or more of the attributes listed below.
The host might also display the following details:
Details: This host has been added to VC, but no Image Profile is associated with it. You can use Apply-ESXImageProfile in the PowerCLI to associate an Image Profile with this host.
