I have seen a million videos were content creators refer to a version of vSphere ESXi 7.0 that is free of cost.
VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 8.0.0 - https://customerconnect.vmware.com/downloads/details?downloadGroup=ESXI800&productId=1345&rPId=98586
VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 7.0.0 - https://customerconnect.vmware.com/downloads/details?downloadGroup=ESXI70U3G&productId=974&rPId=9943...
When I go to either page with my log in account I get the yellow rectangle that says:
You either are not entitled or do not have permissions to download this product.
Check with your My VMware Super User, Procurement Contact or Administrator.
If you recently purchased this product through VMware Store or through a third-party, try downloading later.
I have turned inside out the site and I can't find them. The site looks different from the one they show in the videos so does this mean I got late to the party?
Otherwise if someone could provide a working link I would very much appreciate it 😃 I've been meaning to install ESXi for years to learn it and now that I have the time.... well you know how that goes.
