    Few Roles? VMWare ESXi

    So I wanted to play with VMWare ESXI. I've downloaded version 5 of the VSphere Hypervisor and VMWare have given me a free key I've installed it and the client and it looks OK so far.

    When i log in through the client I only have icons for the inventry, roles and system log. I can create machines, I can create new roles but I seem to be missing things, like the licenceing options, and I can't firgure out how to change it.

    Can anyone give me an idea what I'm missing?

    I think it's pretty well hidden in the host configuration pages.

    edit - seems as though it's under Configuration > Licensed features on 4.1. I'd imagine that it's similar on 5.0

    Just had a look on my ESXi 4.1 server and in the client, you need to click Inventory, then the hostname/IP of the ESXi/Vsphere server (on the left side) > configuration > licensed features > edit (top right of screen)
