I'm installing an Embedded Host Client for VMware ESXi 5.0.0 build-3982828 from https://labs.vmware.com/flings/esxi-embedded-host-client#instructions

After installation, when I try to reach https:///ui/ it shows 503 Service Unavailable...

Is it not possible to have web interface/embedded host on 5.0 ? Or is it some other kind of problem ?

<e id="2"> 

also have to recount other entries, and change the <_length> value at the top of the file.
