You want 3 Vibs.

Example for 6405e:

These 2 can be found in Storage Manager >> MaxView zip for ESXi

vmware-esx-provider-arcconf.vib = command line communication.
vmware-esx-provider-arcsmis.vib = remote management communication 

This can be found under VMWare >> VMware ESXi 6 Downloads

mware-esxi-drivers-scsi-aacraid-*.x86_64.vib = Raid Drivers

Install VMware PowerCLI && place all files under C:/temp/ (Note: you can have other files that don't belong, like VMWare-PowerCLI.exe, and it won't effect anything)

Open VMWare PowerCLI && Download Offline Bundle 

C:\temp.\ESXi-Customizer-PS-v2.4.ps1 -ozip

Create custom ISO with latest Patch level and all your VIB's

C:\temp.\ESXi-Customizer*.ps1 -izip C:\temp\ -pkgDir C:\temp -nsc
