Your version of Acronis is not compatible with VMware vCenter Converter Standalone, you need to use an older version of Acronis.

This can be done by using the VMWare vCenter Converter standalone, this can convert the .tib file directly into your ESXi server.

The standalone converter can be obtained from the downloads section of VMWare you might need to actually purchase this software, but if you have a number of machines you need to import then it's really recommended, they might do a 60 evaluation so you can see if it does everything you need

Converter

Once you have the software simply run the converter, select source type "Backup Image or third-party virtual machine", and give it the details of the ESXi server, it should convert the machine and add it to the inventory.

You need to use an older version of Acronis products, version 9.0 I believe. The latest version of Acronis products, the format has changed and is not compatible with the format which  VMware vCenter Converter Standalone currently understands. This is applicale to v4.x and v5.x of converter.

and then use VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.1

 HOW TO:  Synchronize changes when completing a P2V or V2V with VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.1

HOW TO:  P2V, V2V for FREE - VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.1

VMware Converter Standalone (freeware) can help you in converting the TIB to a VMware compatible format.

Check out this page by searching for words, "Linux Sources" and "Acronis" to make sure that the source is compatible before you start conversion.
