I am trying to figure out how I can connect to an ESX server's storage system so that I can upload VM image files. I am a windows user if that matters (i suspect it does).

Thanks in advance


You can do this through the VMWare Infrastructure Client.

  • Go to the Configuration -> Storage tab.
  • Double click the Datastore you want to upload to.
  • Click the Upload icon (looks like a little disk array with a green arrow pointing up)
  • Follow the instructions from there.

You can also use WinSCP, or Veeam's FastSCP -http://www.veeam.com/vmware-esxi-fastscp.html (works on ESX & ESXi)

I prefer FastSCP myself
