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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
