Editing a host profile results with an error.


In a vCenter Server inventory upgraded to version 6.5 if you try to edit the settings for a host profile with version 5.1, one of the following errors might appear:

Unexpected status code: 503


There are no hosts available in the inventory at the version for the selected Host Profile


vSphere 6.5 supports only hosts and host profiles with version 5.5 and later.


  • Extract a Host Profile from an already upgraded host to version 5.5. or later.
  • Use the Copy Settings from Host option to copy the configuration settings from a host already upgraded to a version 5.5. or later.
    Note: Using the Copy Settings from Host option overwrites the settings within the existing Host Profile or sets them to the default values.
