Uploading ISO files to VMware ESXi 6.0
I recently installed VMware ESXi 6.0 and wanted to get my .iso’s on the remote ESi bare metal box.
I found one way to do this is using SSH and running the wget command and moving the images to the server to get some VM’s setup.
Below you can see the admin panel for the vShere Client, which allows you to import .iso into your environment via your local network but as I mention this server is in the cloud, so I will use the wget command and pull in iso files.
Here you can see the command used to pull down an .iso of unbuntu 14.04.01 64 bit
- cd /vmfs/volumes/ISO_images/
Below you can see the result of the command has completed.
