OK, you've created a VM, have you installed an OS on it?
Creating a VM doesn't magically provide an OS, you've basically got a blank server at that point.

Hi,

Thanks for the responce. What u told is right and i know the same as well. so the problem was not OS, its the bloody vSphere client. i installed it on other system and i was able to see the display on VM.

Thanks guys.
