This blog will show you how to install the VIB for an ESXi host running DELL hardware.

First step is to download the VIB file depending on your ESXi Host version:

Use software like WinSCP to copy the file to your host. Make sure you copy this to /var/log/vmware/ – Please note that you can leave the file in a ZIP format straight from the DELL website.

SSH to the server and enter the following command (replacing the .ZIP to your downloaded filename):
esxcli software vib install –d /var/log/vmware/OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-8.2.0-1739.VIB-ESX51i_A00.Zip

The VIB will install – For this to show, you will need to restart your system. If you want to check that the VIB is in the rebooting image, enter the following command before you restart:
esxcli software vib list –-rebooting-image
