In ESXi 5, there is a  SuppressShellWarning  advanced option,  under Configuration Tab > Advanced options;    on the lefthand side   UserVars:

But since you have SSH enabled, there is an esxcfg-advcfg   command for setting this, that you would be able to access by SSH'ing in and entering the command....:

esxcfg-advcfg -s 1 /UserVars/SuppressShellWarning


Accordingly,  the command

esxcfg-advcfg -g  /UserVars/SuppressShellWarning

will show the current value of the option


For the list of other advanced options,
esxcfg-advcfg -l
