Sharing Folder

Hello All,

1) I have installed esxi and vcenter.
2) I logged on the vcenter server and uploaded win xp iso to local data store
3) Created one virtual machine using vsphere client.
4) I installed the vmware tools on win xp. By right clicking on vm -->Guest --Install/Upgrade VMware tools
4) The win xp is up and working fine.

Question: Suppose if i want to install ms office/any third party application on VM(win xp). How to upload a software or folder to vm(win xp)?

This can be achieved in vmware workstation by clicking on VM --> Settings-->Options--Shared Folders -->There, we will select always enabled and clicking add button.


Please suggest me

You can simply admin share to your VM (\\vmname\c$\path_to_place_install_files)

Shared Folders is a VMware Workstation, Player or Server function, not implemented in ESXi.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
