You can detach baselines and baseline groups from the objects to which the baselines or baseline groups are directly attached.

vSphere inventory objects might have inherited properties, so instead of detaching baselines and baseline groups directly from an object, you might need to select its container object and detach the baselines or baseline groups from the container object. For example, if you want to detach a baseline or a baseline group from a host that is a part of a cluster, you must select the cluster and not the host.


  • Verify that the cluster is not configured to manage all its hosts collectively.
  • Required privileges: VMware vSphere Lifecycle Manager.Manage Baselines.Attach Baseline.


  1. In the vSphere Client, navigate to the vSphere Lifecycle Manager compliance view for an individual host or a container object.

    The Detach dialog box opens.
  4. Select the object to detach the baseline or baseline group from and click Detach.
    The baseline is removed from the Attached Baselines list.
