vCenter server - host profiles error "host state doesn't match specification..."

Setup host profiles and when applied on other hosts i get receive the error message:
Seems that ESXi treats SAS disk as shared disks instead of local disks which causes these errors when you create your host profile from an existing ESXi host.

Solution:

The only workaround I found is to disable the following settings in the host profile -

  • Storage configuration - > Pluggable Storage Architecture (PSA) configuration
    • disable "PSA device settings"
    • disable "PSA device configuration"
  • Storage configuration -> Native Multi-Pathing NMP
    • disable "PSP and SATP configuration for NMP devices
