VMWare 5 - Can you mount Windows Shares from the VMWare command line?
Posted on 2013-06-13
I have a VMWare exported image on an external USB Hard Drive, and I wanted to know the best way to get the image onto the VMWare server's data store.
- Can I mount the USB drive directly on the host and access the file via the datastore browser? The partition is NTFS.
- Can I connect directly to a Windows SMB share from the VMWare command line?
- I was going to copy the image directly to the VMWare server using the Datastore browser, but this was taking SO LONG...there has to be a better way?
What is the method that other people use to export VMWare images (templates, for example) to other servers?
