New installation doesn't seem to match documentation

Hi,
I just downloaded and installed the product, and am following the evaluators guide with a small ESXi (3 host, 20+vms vSphere 5.5) installation. For evaluation I'm using simple deployment on a Windows 2012 R2 VM on one of the hosts.

I get to page 16 - adding vmware servers to the servers list, and it does import them. However, the guide then stops matching what I see, and what I'm able to do.
In particular, starting at: "3. In the inventory pane of the Backup Infrastructure view, right-click the Managed servers
node and select Add Server."

In particular, there is no "Backup Infrastructure" view. I have provided a side by side screenshot:

I can add vm's to the inventory, but then I can't do anything the eval guide says after that. ie, I can't setup a backup proxy. or do any type of scheduling backup. The *only* option, is to zip ad-hoc vmhosts to the local c:/ drive.

What might be going wrong with the evaluation?
Thanks

Oh, apologies - I'm evaluating the free version without entering the 30day trial. Does that mean there is no scheduling, and only "zip" style ad-hoc backup available with the free version?

Ok, thats ok, but then why does it install SQL for storing backups, when it only gives the option to save to local disk?

Even in free edition there should be a database to store information regarding backups, virtual machines, virtual infrastructure, etc. In our case we stick to SQL Express Edition. Thanks.
