Also, just for due diligence, I recommend checking the power profile on the server and ensure it is set to max performance. Turn off processor C-states as well to ensure you get all the firepower that host can give you. There's a host power power management policy setting in ESXi for each host that you can set to high performance as well.

RE: ESXi 6.7 Troubleshooting
Here's a KB that matches the virtual machine hardware versions with product versions like you see when you try to create a VM - https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1003746.
Here's a list of capabilities that match to different virtual machine hardware versions - https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vsphere.vm_admin.doc/GUID-789C3913-1053-4850-A0F0-E29C3D32B6DA.html.
So if you created a VM that was compatible with 6.7U2, it could not run on a host running any version of ESXi older than 6.7U2. In your case that won't be a problem since you are just getting started, but it is something to keep in mind if you build an environment with hosts on newer versions of ESXi later and want to move things around. Keep the VM hardware version at the right level for max flexibility / compatibility in the environment.

What would happen if you wanted to give a conference talk but didn't know if you could gain the expertise in time to actually do it? I would encourage anyone on the fence out there to just go for it, even if you might fail. Here's my story for the encouragement of others.
RE: DFW SpiceCorps 11/14/2019
Please note there was a venue change for this meeting....
There was a miscommunication with the previous venue, so as of 11/7/2019 we have a change in venue to K1 Speed as stated above. We will have a private room with dinner and drinks provided. Anyone who wants to race will be able to do so in multiple groups after 6:30 PM.
If you can arrive at 5:30, that is fantastic. The presentation will begin around 6 PM to give folks enough time to make it to the venue.
