I am using vSphere Client version on Windows 10 at home.  I connect through VPN to an ESXi server at work, where IT folks created a sandbox VM for me to install Ubuntu. I want to install Ubuntu from an ISO image.  How can I  make the vm boot into it?   In my vSphere client I have a choice between Client Device, Host Device, Datastore ISO File, and Content Library ISO File.  Can I use one of these options to use the ISO on my PC or is the only option to ask my IT folks to mount it somehow at work?
