Resolution
1. Login admin account.
2. Run as administrator by following these steps:
1) Close the vSphere Client.
2) Right-click the vSphere Client icon and Click Run as Administrator.
3) Right-click the virtual machine and click Edit Settings.
4) Click CD/DVD and change the device to Passthrough IDE.
5) Power on the virtual machine and connect to the local CD/DVD drive.
6) Select the virtual machine from the vSphere Client menu and Click Inventory > Virtual Machine > Guest > Send Ctrl+Alt+Del.
