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

VMware, a software company founded in 1998, was one of the first commercially successful companies to offer x86 virtualization. The storage company EMC purchased VMware in 1994. Dell Technologies acquired EMC in 2016. VMware’s parent company is now Dell Technologies. VMware has many software products that run on desktops, Microsoft Windows, Linux, and macOS, which allows the virtualizing of the x86 architecture. Its enterprise software hypervisor for servers, VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi), is a bare-metal hypervisor that runs directly on the server hardware and does not require an additional underlying operating system.
