Virtual media allows you to connect a local CD drive or image so that it appears to be connected dirctly to your virtual server. You can change the CD image as follows:

  1. Go to VMWare Web Access, select your virtual machine.
  2. On the "Summary" tab under "Hardware", click the CD icon and choose "Edit..."
  3. Change to "Client Media" and click "OK".
  4. Launch the console.
  5. On the top menu bar click "Devices", "CD/DVD Device", and connect to a local drive or ISO file.
  6. The CD selected will be available to your virtual machine as long as you are connected to the console.

If you need a CD image connected to your server even when you are not using the console, please send the download location to support and we will consider installing it to our inventory.
