    How to import a virtual appliance to ESXi 3.5

    wagde Enthusiast



      I've been trying to import a virtual appliance I downloaded from the marketpalce to my ESX environment, I succeeded to add it to my 3.0.2 and 3.5 ESX servers by downloading the zip file to my PC, and getting it to the ESX servers by ftp to my PC, and then adding it to the inventroy after browsing the storage.


      But When I installed the ESXi 3.5, I saw that it does not have a console (this is the idea of esxi 3.5). So I'm stuck now, and I don't know how to get the VA to the ESXi ? Is there any way to uplaod files to the ESX 3i, ?? ssh ? ftp ? scp ? anything. If not How administrators will deploy the VA they download into their ESXi ?
