I am new to VMware so thank you for your patience and thank you for not assuming I know very much about this.

I have ESXi 5.0 installed on a HP DL360 G7.  When I create a virtual machine it does not recognize the Converged Network Adapter.  I have obtained the drivers for this CNA and it comes in .vib format.  I understand I can use the following command to install this software,

esxcli software vib install -v {VIBFILE}

But I'm having difficulties understanding how to get the file in a location I can idenify.  I currently have the .vib files in a location on the same level as my datastore1.  How would that look in above command?

I can I do this from vCenter or Update Manger more easily?

Thanks in advance for your help.
