You can duplicate baselines and baseline groups and edit the copies without the risk of compromising the original baseline.


Required privileges: VMware vSphere Lifecycle Manager.Manage Baselines


  1. Navigate to the vSphere Lifecycle Manager home view.
    1. In the vSphere Client, select Menu > Lifecycle Manager.
    2. Select a vCenter Server system from the Lifecycle Manager drop-down menu.
      The drop-down menu is available only when multiple vCenter Server systems are connected by a common vCenter Single Sign-On domain. By selecting a vCenter Server system, you specify which vSphere Lifecycle Manager instance you want to administer.
  2. On the Baselines tab, select a baseline or a baseline group from the list and click Duplicate.
    The Duplicate Baseline dialog box opens.
  3. Enter a name for the new baseline or baseline group or use the suggested one.
  4. Click Duplicate to confirm the creation of a duplicate copy of the selected baseline or baseline group.


The duplicated baseline or baseline group appears in the Baselines list on the Baselines tab.
