how to install dlink 528t and atheros ar8168 ethernet nic (or any other) driver in esxi (6.X)

hi

first i download the vid file from internet =>
http://murzim.tistory.com/entry/Atheros-AR8151AR8161-custom-driver-on-ESXi
then with the help of this video link from vmware =>
Installing async drivers on VMware ESXi 5.0, 5.1, and 5.5 – Part 2 – YouTube
which as below:
first copy downloaded driver to datastore from esxi win client or web client or sap software (like winSCP)
the put server in maintenance mode by client or the following code:
> esxcli system maintenanceMode Set —enable true
then copy copied file to /var/log/vmware path
install by
*for .vib files
>esxcli software via install -v /var/log/vmware/*.vib
*for *bundle*.zip files
>esxcli software via install -d /var/log/vmware/*.zip

then restart server by
>reboot

wait until server completely boot up

see if driver is installed and eth is detect by
>lspci -v | grep “Class 0200” -B 1

it should be shown something like this:
[root@localhost:~] lspci -v | grep “Class 0200” -B 1
0000:02:00.0 Ethernet controller Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet [vmnic2]
Class 0200: 1969:1091

0000:04:00.0 Ethernet controller Network controller: D-Link System Inc DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter [vmnic0]
Class 0200: 1186:4300

0000:04:01.0 Ethernet controller Network controller: D-Link System Inc DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter [vmnic1]
Class 0200: 1186:4300

if its [vmnic*] is there in end of the network adapter name ,its mean driver installation has successfully

remember put back serve from maintenance mode by this command
> esxcli system maintenanceMode Set —enable false

    wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few p.c.
    to pressure the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
