You can move image profiles between custom depots by using the vSphere Client and modify it without affecting the source depot's configuration.



  1. Navigate to Home > Auto Deploy.
    By default, only the administrator role has privileges to use the vSphere ESXi Image Builder service.
  2. On the Software Depots tab, use the drop-down menu to select the software depot that contains the image profile that you want to work with.
  3. On the Image Profiles tab, select an image profile and click Move to.
  4. From the drop-down menu, select the custom depot in which you want to move the image profile.
  5. Click OK.


The image profile is in the new software depot.
