I am sorry if this question has been asked 1000 times.
I am trying to use an ISO image to load servers on an ESX box as using CDROM is slow.
I have created the ISO image but am not sure how to put it on the ESX box. I tried Putty but am unable to get it to see the ESX box.
Any help or links to answers to this would be much appreciated.
Thanks very much guys this helps very much!
Since I have 2 ESX servers would it be better for me to keep the ISO on another Windows server I have and just map to that?
Is there any speed advantage to having the ISO on the ESX server it self?
Looks like the higher ups here want the ISO on the actual ESX server.
Is there an easy way to make a folder on the ESX server? Would this be a Linx command?
Sorry for the newbie questions
I have found the vmimages folder on the server but Putty or Veeam is not allowing me to access the server. I keep getting access denied messages no matter what username / password I try?
Do I need to change some settings to allow access to the root login to move the files?
You will need to use a non-root account, VI3 does not let you connect as root by default. Veeam is nice because you can use a regular account and automatically set it to su - you up to root.
Basically create a new non-root account on the server and use that to access through SSH/SCP/Veeam....
There are also some posts on creating an account with full access or setting up root to be allowed in if you search around a bit. Try searching for root user ssh.

Login to the server using the Virtual Infrastructure Client, create a user for yourself that has under the Users & Groups tab and check the 'Grant shell access to this user' box. Then use that account to copy the file over.
alternatively you can set
then service sshd restart
you will not be able to copy files into that location by default it is readonly
what you need to do is putty on to the server and thsn SU to root,
chmod 775 /vmimages
this will change the rigths on the folder to allow you to VeeamSCP into the server and copy up your ISOs
