I'd like to download a large OS install ISO directly to my datastore. I used to be able to SSH to the ESXi terminal and use
wget to download large files directly to the datastore, but it seems that
wget can't handle
https links anymore (
wget: not an http or ftp url).
I'm wondering how others handle this. I know I can download the file to my laptop and use the datastore browser to upload it, but that's a two-step process (not to mention horribly inefficient when I'm offsite and accessing ESX through a VPN).
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
