How can I mount a local ISO using vSphere?


Before you can mount a local ISO using vSphere, you need to download the appropriate ISO file from the developer/provider web site. Once you have done so, you can locally mount the ISO to a remote VMware server:
* Log into your server using vShpere
* Right-click on the VM in the left navigation pane and click on Edit Settings.
* In the Virtual Machine Properties window, click on CD/DVD Drive 1. In the right of the window, there will be a Device Type section. Select Client Device and clik OK to save the changes. 
* Before you can mount the ISO, the VM needs to be started. You can do so by right-clicking on the VM and selecting power -> Power On.
* In the top menu, click on the CD-ROM icon and select CD/DVD Drive 1 -> Connect to ISO image on local disk. 
Your disk will now be mounted and available for use by the virtual machine.
