If VMware is running from SD card, you need to specify the scratch config in advanced config menu on ESX Client.

Create a 'logs' folder on the datastore, and create sub folders for each ESX host below that.

Specify the path as below:

/vmfs/volumes/datastorename/logs/esx1

Save and reboot the host, when the host comes back online, browse the datastore for the logfiles and it should be populated with live logs.
