Description Germano Veit Michel 2017-08-11 01:47:03 EDT
Description of problem:

For VMs, if the user changes a configuration that requires the VM to be power cycled to take effect, a tooltip is displayed to inform the user.

However, the same applies for Hosts but and there is no such feature.
Some host configurations require the host to be re-installed in order to be pushed. One example is kdump integration. We have the following note in the 

When you enable Kdump integration on an existing host, the host must be reinstalled for kdump to be configured. See Section 7.5.12, “Reinstalling Hosts”. 

This is not user-friendly. This RFE is to create a similar feature for Hosts.
