I am using VMClient 5.5

I uploaded a driver

I logged into the ESX ssh session (where I run esxtop commands)

I do not know which path to go to find my datastore or file

Under what path can I find the datasorres

/vmfs/volumes/[DATASTORE]

so, try cd /vmfs/volumes

followed by ls -al

will show all your datastores

your command will then be

 esxcli software vib install -d /vmfs/volumes/[DATASTORE]/[driver-file].zip

I do not have that file path on my system

From root I have


bin   cgroup  etc   lib    lost+found  misc  net  proc  sbin     srv  tmp  var
boot  dev     home  lib64  media       mnt   opt  root  selinux  sys  usr

Any ideas how I can find this ?

that does not look like ESXi to me. selinux looks odd? ESXi is not Linux!

are you sure you are logged into ESXi.

you should have a /vmfs/volumes/ folder

type vmware -v

what does it state?

my ESXi looks like this...

altbootbank      lib64            sbin             var
bin              local.tgz        scratch          vmfs
bootbank         locker           store            vmimages
bootpart.gz      mbr              tardisks         vmupgrade
dev              opt              tardisks.noauto  vsantraces
etc              proc             tmp
lib              productLocker    usr
