Install MegaCLI on ESXi 5.1/5.5 and silence Raid Alarms

In some circumstances you might want to silence RAID alarms on a productive ESXi host w/o rebooting the system (or the alarm re-occurs on reboot). For this, I suggest to install MegaCLI and install it on maintenance mode, so you don’t have to reboot.

Get the VIB install file from Avogotech: http://docs.avagotech.com/docs/12351585?_ga=2.129075663.2121671514.1582901305-445606264.1582901305

Upload the vib file to your ESXi host (WinSCP, MobaXterm,…)

Login via SSH and navigate to the vib file.

run:
esxcli software vib install -v=/tmp/vmware-esx-MegaCli-8.07.07.vib -f --maintenance-mode

Output:
Installation Result
Message: Operation finished successfully.
Reboot Required: false
VIBs Installed: LSI_bootbank_vmware-esx-MegaCli-8.07.07_8.07.07-01
VIBs Removed:
VIBs Skipped:

MegaCLI is now installed in /opt/lsi/MegaCLI
cd into the directory and use for silencing the alarms:
./MegaCli -adpsetprop -alarmsilence -aAll
