Step 2. Browse to your deployment folder from local datastore: (Local datastore name may vary)

# cd /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/deployment


Step 3. Modify firewall rules:

# esxcli network firewall ruleset set -e true -r httpClient

# esxcli software vib install -f --no-sig-check -d /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/deployment/esx-syneto-update.zip
