1. Are you connecting to vCenter Server?

2. Exit and restart your vSphere Client?

3. Do you have VMware HA enabled?

4. Try connecting directly to the ESXi server and creating the rules.

Like Andrew commented, check that VMWare HA is enabled.

It's not recommended to use Auto-Start VMs, when you have VMware HA configured.
