    Hi all,
     
    Is there a mechanism to upload a file through http link to a datastore [ESXi datastore].
    I could get the option to upload a file from local HDD only as of now.
    Do please let me know if there is a procedure to accomplish this.

    Thanks &regards,
    Vinothkumar K

    Hi Vinothkumar,

    I think Starting in version 3.5, ESXi supports HTTP based file transfer for files on any mounted datastore. please take a look at below link it might be useful for you.
