VMware ESXi 5.1update3 and deploying Red Hat Linux Enterprise 7 x64

Deploying a Red Hat Linux Enterprise 7 x64 virtual machine on ESXi 5.1update3.  

Issue
The “Red Hat Linux Enterprise 7 x64” OS options is not available in the drop down list when trying to deploy a new VM from the vSphere client.

Supported
Just to confirm, it is supported in ESXi 5.1 update 3 (others might say update 2). (See VMware compatibility guide http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=software&testConfig=16 )

Solution
However, to deploy with the option to select Red Hat Linux Enterprise 7 x64 for the OS, you will need to deploy from the web client and not the usual vSphere client.

Just tested with web client with SSO an the VM deployed successfully.
