Well today I remembered something, well to be truthful, I remembered it five minutes after moving my new hosts into maintenance mode, applying my newly created host profile from my reference host, filling in the network details for all the port groups and VMkernel groups and clicking finish.
So what exactly did I remember? Well I remembered that before you apply a reference host profile to a host that is over 6000 miles away (well to be fair, even if it is under your desk or hosted on your desktop), always remember to remove the policy that relates to your primary management console. Why? I hear you ask.
