You create a host profile by extracting the configuration from a designated reference host.
Verify that you have a working vSphere installation and at least one completely and properly configured host.
- Navigate to the Host Profiles main view and click Extract Host Profile.
- On the Select host page, select the vCenter Server instance where to create the host profile.
- Select the host that acts as the reference host and click Next.
The selected host must be a valid host.
- Enter a name and, optionally, a description for the new profile, and click Finish.
The new profile appears in the Host Profiles pane.
