SCP to ESXi in Mac OS X

Here’s how you copy files to the datastore on your ESXi server from a Mac.

Let’s say you want to copy an ISO file to your datastore on your ESXi server so you can install an OS with it.

Open up a Terminal window and type:

scp WinXP.iso root@192.168.1.33:/vmfs/volumes/vmstore/ISO

This will do just that.  I average about 4MB/s writing to the datastore with my Macbook’s 100Mbit connection.

To do the reverse and copy a file to your Mac, you type:

scp root@192.168.1.33:/vmfs/volumes/vmstore/ISO/filename.iso /Users/name/Desktop

You obviously have to make the necesary changes to your IP address and datastore name.
