You need to create a static entry in DNS.
You must always have good working DNS resolution for VMware vSphere.

Have you added the hostname and IP address of your ESXi host into the DNS?

I have not added it in DNS... I just added it now and it works

Thank you Guys!

Thank you All Guys!
You always need to ensure tha VMware vSphere is only as god as your DNS resolution, forward and reverse, get into the habit of using FQDNs everywhere with VMware vSphere and NOT IP Addresses.

In later versions of vSphere, you will NOT be able to install if you do not have forward and reverse DNS setup before you install!
