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 firstname.lastname@example.org:/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 email@example.com:/vmfs/volumes/vmstore/ISO/filename.iso /Users/name/Desktop
You obviously have to make the necesary changes to your IP address and datastore name.
