I am trying to install the vib file for Adaptec 2405 raid controller. The driver indicates VMware 5 but adaptec support says 5.1 should work.

/cim/esxi5_0/cim # esxcli software vib install --maintenance-mode --no-sig-check -v /cim/esxi5_0/vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib 
 [VibDownloadError]
 ('/cim/esxi5_0/vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib', '', "[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/cim/esxi5_0/vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib'>")
        url = /cim/esxi5_0/vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib
 Please refer to the log file for more details.

Have you tried putting in the /tmp directory or VMFS datastore.

I get the same error. I looked more closely at the error:

No such file or directory: '/var/log/vmware/vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib'>")

So I copied the vib their. Got a little further...

New Error:
/tmp # esxcli software vib install --maintenance-mode --no-sig-check -v vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib 
 [DependencyError]
 VIB Adaptec_bootbank_arcconf_1.00-1's acceptance level is unsigned, which is not compliant with the ImageProfile acceptance level partner
 To change the host acceptance level, use the 'esxcli software acceptance set' command.
 Please refer to the log file for more details.

Change the acceptance level, and you should be done.

esxcli software acceptance set --level=CommunitySupported

see here

~ # esxcli software vib install -v /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib
