  2. In the Navigator panel, select the Storage section.
  3. Select the Datastores tab.
  4. Click Datastore browser.

    This opens the Datastore browser window.

  5. Select the data storage and the folder in which you want to upload the ISO file.
  6. Click Upload.

    The file selection window opens.

  7. Select a file and click Open.

Wait until the file finishes uploading. When the upload is complete, the name of the ISO file is displayed in the file table of the host's data storage. Make sure the size of the uploaded file in the table matches the size of the source file.
