    Can anyone tell me why the answer is B+C.

    I think it’s a + C,. If you enable SSH, the port will automatically open.?

    If you enable Lock down mode, then you are unable to connect to the host with ssh.

  2. MKashif says:

    By-default for a newly-installed ESXi 5.x host Lock down mode is disabled, unless you enable it. So forget about Lock down mode and consider it disable in this question.

    A & C are absolutely wrong as no need to enable root to logon it is already enabled, and no need to create a local user then SU to root.

    C is correct as you have to enable SSH service
    regarding B i have tested in my lab and “BD” guess is right that the firewall automatically opens the port.
