Is it possible to drag & drop a file from my desktop to a ESXs guest via VSphere Client ( i mean drag & drop it to the guests console) like I do between any file on my desktop and a VM Workstation`s guest ?

Thanks !

It's not possible and I believe it is that way by design. Only the client products like workstation can do this. Imagine you are being hosted on an ESX infrastructure, do you really want Dr. Blackhat on a VM on the same farm to be able to get anywhere near the ESX infrastructure?

If only, If Only. I've only found that works via VM Fusion OR Vmware Workstation sorry to say.
