On the DCUI (the black & yellow console) it should tell you the IP address of the ESXi you have installed, if you don't know it already.

Point a web browser at the ESXi server. You will get a web page. There will be a link to download the VI Client. Download and install, then connect to the ESXi with it. This will let you manage the ESXi.
