Is it possible to mount an ISO to the VM from the internet without downloading it?

Hi,

No, it is not possible.

It is possible to mount an ISO from a network share / NFS datastore.

No, even if possible that would be not productive at all...

You can always use a DataStore to upload your ISO files after you download them, and also content libraries, that are a really cool feature.

Using Content Libraries

Upload the iso and use it from datastore:

Hope that helps
