IBM ServeRAID 5110 on VMware ESXi

Hi, I am trying to install IBM ServeRAID Manager "LSI Mega Raid" manager on a Windows VM and getting some errors following a retain tip from IBM.

http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=migr-5092858

IBM says to run this command from SSH on the VMware ESXi host:

esxcli network firewall unload export LD Library Path=/usr/lib/CIM

However, I get this error:

login as: root
Using keyboard-interactive authentication.
Password:
The time and date of this login have been sent to the system logs.

VMware offers supported, powerful system administration tools.  Please
see www.vmware.com/go/sysadmintools for details.

The ESXi Shell can be disabled by an administrative user. See the
vSphere Security documentation for more information.
~ # esxcli network firewall unload export LD Library Path=/usr/lib/CIM
Error: Unknown command or namespace network firewall unload export LD Library Path=/usr/lib/CIM

I think it is possible. I am very close to having it working.

Odd, when LSI scans my system it discovers the IP as 0.0.0.0 instead of 172.16.1.131

It was not discoverable until I installed the LSI VIB file.

I clicked on it and got a login. I tried my root login but did not work. See image attached.

Ok, IT WORKS!!!!!!

I installed the VIB file then all I had to do was add the VMware server hostname to my DNS server and it worked!

See image.
