adaptec 2405 vib driver vmware esxi 5.1

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]

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
