Can't install VIB

Hi all,

Im trying to install a NIC driver into my ESXi from ILO remote console with esxi shell as I don't have management connectivity to it.

I have created an ISO with the VIB files and mounted it into the ILO CDROM and ESXI with the command:

vsish -e set /vmkModules/iso9660/mount mpx.vmhba33:C0:T0:L0

The actual content of the ISO is:

Everything works fine until I try to install the VIB, when I do an ls -l I cannot see any of the files in the ISO file, I just see this:

I have tried the below commands without any luck:

esxcli software vib install -v net-nx-nic_6.0.643-1OEM.600.0.0.249.4585.vib

esxcli software vib install -v NET-NX-2

esxcli software vib install -v NX_NIC-3

I just keep getting this message for example for NX_NIC-3:

What is wrong here? any idea?

Try the same command with “/vmfs/volumes/mpxx/xyz.vib”

give the full path in inverted commas

The issue is that you are running the command from /var/log and the VIB file is not there so run the command using the full path that is shown in the picture.
