Hi,

Its because you don't have licence attach to your account, or if you company own licence. Administrator need to add your account into the good folder in user & permissions on my vmware.

Follow the link posted by andré above Smiley Happy.

But If you want to test with a vcenter do not use vSphere Hypervisor 5.

If you want to manage only one ESX, use the second which is free for use.

From the two links I provided, the first one offers you a 60-day enaluation of the complete vSphere Suite (including vCenter Server, ESXii, ...) whereas the second link provides you with the free Hypervisor. Note that the free Hypervisor and ESXi share the exact same binaries and only the license key locks or unlocks features.
