Instead of generating a remediation pre-check report for the entire cluster, you can run a remediation pre-check task for a single host in the cluster.

The remediation pre-check task ensures that the host can be successfully remediated.


Verify that you have the proper privileges. See vSphere Lifecycle Manager Privileges For Using Images.


  1. In the vSphere Client, navigate to a cluster that you manage with a single image.
  2. On the Updates tab, select Hosts > Image.
  3. In the Image Compliance card, click the vertical ellipsis icon for a host and select Run pre-check.
    The Running pre-check card appears. You can observe the progress of the task.


When the pre-check finishes, vSphere Lifecycle Manager displays information about the issues found during the pre-check.

What to do next

If vSphere Lifecycle Manager reports no issues, you can remediate the host. See Remediate a Single Host Against an Image.

If vSphere Lifecycle Manager reports any issues, resolve the issues before you remediate the host.
