Did you try running the command like this: 

    ./mbrscan

Also, if that doesn't work, make sure the files have the executable bit set.

chmod +x *

Nope.

/vmfs/volumes/935ccd64-e6d70c64/ISOs # cd netapp_esx_host_utilities_5_1/opt/netapp/santools

/vmfs/volumes/935ccd64-e6d70c64/ISOs/netapp_esx_host_utilities_5_1/opt/netapp/santools # ./mbrscan

Steven,

I believe 'mbrscan' needs an argument, otherwise it'll just go straight back to a prompt with no output (which indicates that it did what was requested, i.e. nothing).

Try:

./mbrscan [path to a .vmdk file]

I am getting same error. I uploaded the folder called

 

and extracted the utilities on my datastore

 

keep getting this error
