    "New Plug-in" Greyed out

    saoirs3 Lurker

      Hi,

       

      When using vSphere client on an ESXi5.1 host, I can't add plugins because the "New Plug-in..." pop up is greyed out in the Plug-in Manager - see picture below.

       

      I'd be grateful for any help in resolving this newbie issue.

       

      This host started out as a VMware vSphere 5 Hypervisor Host, to which the following licence has been added.

      Product: VMware vSphere 5 Enterprise Plus Licensed for 1 physical CPUs (unlimited cores per CPU)

          Are you trying to install the plugin using the XML file?

          Doesn't the product you are trying to integrate have a registration package? I see this in my 5.5 standalone host too. I think we will not be able to add plugins directly to ESXi. Most of the plug-in's talk at vCenter level.
