I too need some help with getting maxView to run on esxi 6.5!
I had same problem with latest Adaptec drivers + firmware + ESXI 6.5.
I solved it by following advice on another thread:
Basically, use older drivers + MSM:
Works fine on my eSXI 6.5 build.
I think you guys are in for a rude awakening (maxview ALWAYS shows Optimal, even when you pull drives w alarm sounded, and esxi web int->manage shows degraded, even after a rescan in maxview, ALWAYS optimal). also i have never been able to get arcconf to work under any guestOS (win or linux). it always shows error, CIM (something). Ive confirmed via curl and web browser, that cim port 5989 is accessable.
I am unable to connect get the maxview windows storage manager / msm app or the arcconf.exe to connect to a Adaptec 72405 RAID card that is in a server running ESXi 6.7 update 2.
First I installed the adaptec 7 driver for esxi v184.108.40.206.1.52033-5095623.
Next, I tried both the vmware-esx-provider-arc-cim-provider.vib and the vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib drivers as well as the arcconf app that is included in the two versions of the msm that are listed below.
After I issue the arcconf connect command on either port 5989 or port port 5988 it appears to accept the command because it does not display an error. Next I issue the "arcconf getconfig 1" command and I received the error message below.
"CIM Exception: Error initializing provider arcCLIProvider from arcCLIProvider for class ARC_CLIExecutor.."
I tried downloading the versions that you posted, but the links no longer worked. I then tried googling the file names and was unable to find the files.
The second problem is the card or array status info does not appear under host / monitor / hardware / storage in the web vphere client v1.33.3. Do you know how to get that to work?
If there is not a solution, is there a work around? One thing that popped up on one of my google searches was nagios monitoring, but I was not able to find any information about it monitoring a adaptec card with ESXi 6.7 update 2.
