Uploading files sized 5 GB to datastore fails

Jump to solution

Hi

We tried multiple options to upload the ISO file with more than 5 Gb and it fails, we have configured Microsoft FTP (with IIS), how is it possible to upload from FTP using SSH connection to ESXi?

Thanks in advance

ESXi shell has the tool wget - you can use that to download ISOs from FTP-servers.

Do you need support with a recovery problem ? - call me via skype "sanbarrow"

You may try other options

Keep a copy of iso in your desktop machine

Use winscp tool to copy the file from your windows machine to ESXi server

or

Launch webclient or host client to access the ESXi datastore

Use file upload option in the datastore to upload the file

Upload Files to a Datastore in the VMware Host Client

Thanks a lot, this is what we looked for. Is there a way to mention password in a secure way, because with wget we mention ftp password in plain text.
