Error: Unknown command or namespace software

Hi All,

I am facing an issue with installing an Offline driver update using the below command line.

[root@localhost:~] esxcli software vib install –v lsi-mr3-7.706.09.00-1OEM.650.0.0.4598673.x86_64.vib

You need to specify the path not file name.

If you uploaded the file on datastore or local mount points, you should use file address like the below:

esxcli software vib install –v /tmp/lsi-mr3-7.706.09.00-1OEM.650.0.0.4598673.x86_64.vib

Or

esxcli software vib install –v /vmfs/volumes/datastoreX/lsi-mr3-7.706.09.00-1OEM.650.0.0.4598673.x86_64.vib

Like @DavoudTeimouri has already stated, you need always to add the full path for the file.
