If you are experienced in VMware, you know that in enterprise configurations this can create issues—not in functionality, mind you—with host profile compliance. VMware admins use host profiles to ensure that changes are consistent across the data center, and local storage adapters and their associated device configurations are part of that profile. So how can we fix this and ensure host profile compliance when we know we have one particular detail that might vary from host to host, appropriately?
The solution to the problem, then, is to deconfigure the application of these certain settings from the selected hosts or clusters. As pictured above (this is the web client version), you can unselect these options from the reference profile and then recheck compliance. You will find that the compliance failures (from the RAID hardware in our case study here) will retreat.
Note: If you are using the desktop client, the options are different. Don't edit the profile; instead, choose the Enable/Disable Profile Configuration option—which is rather confusing at first glance (glad they changed this in the web client).
