Hello - I need to upload some .iso files to my ESXi 4 datastore. Can I do that from the Vsphere 4 client? I can't seem to find where to do it.

thanks!

You can use FastSCP (www.veeam.com) to copy files to your ESXi Server. Once you install Veeam and connect to your ESXi server with it, you can copy the ISO files to your VMFS datastore located under the VMFS folder.
The other wasy is to to use the vSphere Client. So if you right click your datastore and choose browse, in the resultant window that opens you can use that to copy files.
FastSCP is the faster option .. it's also a cool tool to keep your arsenal!

  • In the client
  • click on configurations
  • click on storage.
  • Right click on your data store that is listed and select browse.
  • From here, you can upload your iso images.
