The -n --vibname is used when installing .vib files ... Like this:

esxcli software vib install –n /path/async-driver.vib

Open in new window



For zip files it's simply something like this:

esxcli software vib install -d "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/patch-directory/ESXi55-xxxxx.zip" 

Open in new window
