Hello Experts,

I'm trying to upload the Titanium emulator to VMWare ESXi 5.5. The image is and .rar file, Titanium-VM-5.rar. It consists of the following files:

N7K-2.nvram
N7K-2.vmsd
N7K-2.vmx
Titanium-VM-5.1(2)-cl1.vmdk
Titanium-VM-5.1(2)-cl1-flat.vmdk

Can someone let me know if I need to create an ISO of the files or do I need to convert the .rar into an ISO?

Basically, I'm following instructions which state that in Step 1. I need to upload the Titanium ISO image the ESXi datastore, but I don't have the files as an ISO image.

An Expert called Andrew Hancock has already shown me how to upload files, but I just don't know if the files need to made into an ISO before uploading?

Cheers

Carlton

You don't need an ISO or RAR, extract the files, from the RAR and upload...

You would use an ISO, if you had one, and upload it, attach it to a VM, and install the OS from it....see my EE Articles..

Upload all those files to your datastore...

N7K-2.nvram
N7K-2.vmsd
N7K-2.vmx
Titanium-VM-5.1(2)-cl1.vmdk
Titanium-VM-5.1(2)-cl1-flat.vmdk

You may want to create a VM Folder first....

Part 4: HOW TO: Upload an ISO CD-ROM/DVD-ROM image to a VMware datastore for use with VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1) using the vSphere Client, and checking its MD5 checksum signature is correct.

Use my Article as an Example to upload all the files above....

and then Right Click the N7K-2.vmx file, and click Add to Inventory.....

A word of warning, the virtual machine you have needs to be designed for ESXi 5.5!
