Copying file from host cd into vmware

Copying file from host cd into vmware

Copying file from host cd into vmware

I was told by Ibm to Run Dsa (Dynamic System Analysis) on the blade hosting my esx4 because we are suspecting controller issues.
I have no clue on how to move the dsa file into vmware and run it from a temp directory.
All I can think of is put the file on a cd then use the console to copy it to temp directory I just created. Then run it from there.
Since I am not an esx/linux command line guru any help would be appreciated on how to mount the cd (if needed), copy the file from the cd into the temp directory.

Thank you

If you are running a Windows client try using an SCP client like's Veeam's FastSCP software in order to copy your files to the ESX host

Thanks for the reply. I contacted VMware and they helped me out.
