HOW TO: Upload an ISO image to a VMware datastore for use with VMware vSphere Hypervisor 7.0 (ESXi 7.0) using the vSphere Host Client and checking its MD5 checksum signature is correct.  It's a good idea to compare checksums because many installations fail because of a corrupt iso image.

for more guidance and a step by step tutorial with screenshots, which supports this video, please see the following article which this video is based on HOW TO: Upload an ISO image to a VMware datastore for use with VMware vSphere Hypervisor 7.0 (ESXi 7.0) using the vSphere Host Client, and checking its MD5 checksum signature is correct.

Video Steps

1. Connect to the VMware vSphere Hypervisor 7.0 (ESXi 7.0) using the Host Client.

Using a web browser connect directly to the ESXi host

2. Uploading the ISO image to the datastore.

Using the datastore browser, upload the iso to the datastore

3. Confirming the upload of the ISO image file has been transferred successfully using the MD5 checksum signature.

Use md5sum to check the MD5 signature.
