Why am I getting a “fault.RestrictedVersion.summary” error message when I try to control a Virtual Machine?

Home Support VMware Why am I getting a “fault.RestrictedVersion.summary” error message when I try to control a Virtual Machine?

If you are seeing the error “fault.RestrictedVersion.summary” while trying to view your VMware Virtual Machines on your ESXi hosts, it is likely because you are using the free version of ESXi.

In order to manage an ESXi host with IT Manager the ESXi host must be licensed with VMWare.
