    1. Login to the ESXi 4 server using the vSphere GUI Client.

    2. Select the ESX server

    3. On the Users & Groups tab This is where you edit the user account. You can edit the username, edit the UID, change the password, grant shell access, or edit group membership.

    4. If you right-click in the white space, you can choose to Add a new user, like this:

     Adding a User to ESX
    5. If you want the user to be an administrator-equivalent user, all you have to do is add them to the group called 'root'.
