Trying to install these on an hp dl360 running vsphere 4.1.
Everything appears ok until it gets to the point of 'checking for installed HBAs' where it says fails and nothing installs.
I know the HBA's are ok as we are booting from san and thats working great.
I can't seem to find any install logs to advise more specifically why it failed.
Any suggestions please.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

The ESX Host Utilities 5.1 is not supported on ESX 4.1 for this very reason. Some of the commands changed which affected the install shell script.
Please get ESX Host Utilities 5.2. That is supported on ESX 4.1 and should install without issues. Otherwise, you can email me directly.

Be warned that the "mbralign" tool from 5.2 currently has a bug that will trash your vmdks if you try to align them. You should use the mbralign binary from the 5.1 release.
This is noted on the download page but it can easily be missed.

There is a new 5.3 utility that doesnt have the same warning as 5.2.
I think you should install 5.3 instead of 5.2
best of luck
