This is not vcenter 6.5. The example is for 6.0 which is totally different than 6.5 which is referenced in the subject. Please change your subject so google searches will not hit this article for people looking for 6.5.

    i was running vcenter 6.5 for this example in 2017. in april 2018 i converted my environment to vcenter 6.0 for support with the software client. the timeline supports that i would not have been able to perform this “6.0 tutorial” in my 6.5 environment.

    some more valuable feedback than “this is not right” would be to provide some sort of documentation that supports your claim.

    thanks for your feedback anyways.
