So you cannot add this server to vCenter 5.0?

It's possible that vSphere vCenter 5.0 is not compatible with ESX 3.0.2.

You need to be at at least ESX 3.5 Update 5 to be compatible with vCenter Server 5.0 as shown here:

A trial of ESX 3.5 does not exist.

You can only download ESX if you are licensed.

Only ESXi trials can be downloaded.
