Error while Applying Host Profile with third-party VIbs

So recently I was trying to apply the Host profile on the newly built ESXi host and the extracted profile contains some third party vib that needs to be installed on the new host. We are using Cisco 1kv vsm swithes and it was trying to install vsm driver on the new host and got below error:

 

 

On checking the logs I found that ESXi host acceptance level is not set to “partner supported “. Since I was trying to install a third party vib. set acceptance level as below and it worked.

#esxcli software acceptance set –level=PartnerSupported

 

There are 4 acceptance levels :

VMwareCertified

VMwareAccepted

PartnerSupported

CommunitySupported
