if you open the zip file you have downloaded, and inspect the <id> in the vmware.xml file in the metadata.zip file (inside the archive)


<id> Fujitsu-VMvisor-Installer-5.0.0.update01-702118-v210-1 </id>

 <description>Fujitsu customized ESXi5.0 Update 1 Image, based on VMware build 702118</description>

Remember you can also clone, profiles using a wildcard


New-EsxImageProfile -CloneProfile Fu* -Name "Custom_vSphere5"

So we would normally do:-

PowerCLI C:\> New-EsxImageProfile -CloneProfile Fu* -Name "ESXi-5.0.0-702118"

Name                           Vendor          Last Modified   Acceptance Level
----                           ------          -------------   ----------------
ESXi-5.0.0-702118              Fujitsu         20/06/2012 0... PartnerSupported

Checking the Build before download, in the description, and double check by inspecting the zip file contents.
