    Import a Host Profile (PAGE 9)
    You can import a profile from a file in the VMware profile format (.vpf).
    NOTE When a host profile is exported, administrator and user profile passwords are not exported. This is a
    security measure and stops passwords from being exported in plain text when the profile is exported. You will
    be prompted to re-enter the values for the password after the profile is imported and the password is applied
    to a host.
    Procedure
    1 In the Host Profiles main view, click the Create Profile icon.
    The Create Profile wizard appears.
    2 Select the option to import a profile and click Next.
    3 Enter or browse the VMware Profile Format file to import and click Next.

    Clone a Host Profile (PAGE 10)
    A host profile clone is a copy of an existing host profile.
    Procedure
    1 In the Host Profiles main view, select the profile to clone.
    2 Click Clone Profile.
    3 A clone of the profile appears in the Host Profiles view.
