About hypervisor profiles

A hypervisor profile contains the configurations intended for a hypervisor running on a server hardware managed by HPE OneView. This hypervisor is member of a cluster managed by HPE OneView, and it provides the virtualized compute, network and storage resources to the cluster.

A hypervisor profile configuration is inherited from the hypervisor cluster profile; configurations on the hypervisor profile cannot be edited directly. The network and storage configurations on the hypervisor depend on the configurations of the underlying server hardware. A server profile associated with the hypervisor profile provides these needed configurations for the server hardware. The server profile is derived from the server profile template referenced in the hypervisor cluster profile. In summary, the configuration of the hypervisors and server nodes are driven by the hypervisor cluster profile, and hence configurations are managed consistently from server nodes to hypervisors across the cluster.
