Yes I think I might did it. Its because I could not post my question. Now I already resolved the issue. I am newbie with vmware and not familiar with the forum, but I like it very much. If you find some questions are posted incorrectly, just send message and let me know. Thank you for your reply and help.

Moderator: You had also created a second post of this issue as an "article" in the ESXi Documents area - that article has now been archived as this ESXi Discussions area is the correct place.
