Multi-Hypervisor manager is giving the following error message:

A problem occurred while connecting to the vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager services running on vcenter.domain:
The Vcenter server license does not support the Vcenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager.

I thought that this 3rd party software can be added so that VCenter will recognize VMware servers with Hypervisor installed.

vCenter Multi-Hypervisor is not a 3rd party product and is apparently only available for use if you have vCenter Server Standard edition. If you have Foundation or Essentials it's not available.

See the installation notes for details:
https://www.vmware.com/support/mhm/doc/vcenter-multi-hypervisor-manager-111-release-notes.html

The release notes will list the version  compatibility as well.

It's not supported for your vCenter Server license, only vCenter Standard!

as stated in this post http:#a40381062.

Your VMware vSphere license is entry level, you would need to upgrade to vCenter Standard, and ESXi standard on your hosts.
