Working in Skytap Cloud

Best viewed by: All Users | Level: Beginner | Instructor: Michele

In this video, you’ll learn how to upload your own files to your VMs, using Assets and the shared drive. You’ll then learn how to load .iso files onto VMs.

If you can’t access the Internet from a browser inside your VM, you won’t be able to use the Assets page to transfer files to and from the VM. Instead, use the shared drive to upload files to the VM. For instructions, see Adding and sharing files with the shared drive.

Transfer a file from your VM to your local machine using the Assets page:

  1. Access the desktop of a running VM.
  2. Within the VM, sign in to Skytap and open the Assets page.

    If you can’t access the Internet from a browser inside your VM, you won’t be able to use the Assets page to transfer files to and from the VM. Instead, use the shared drive to upload files to the VM. For instructions, see Adding and sharing files with the shared drive.

  3. Add any file from the VM to the Assets page.
  4. On your local machine, download the file from the Assets page.
  5. Close the VM desktop browser tab.
  6. Optionally, you can delete the file from your Assets library.

For help with this exercise, see: Adding and sharing files with the Assets page.
