You can upload new media files or new versions of existing media files to a catalog. Users with access to the catalog can open the media files with their virtual machines.


This operation requires the rights included in the predefined Catalog Author role or an equivalent set of rights.


  1. From the main menu (), select Libraries, and select Media & Other from the left panel.
    The list of media files displays in a grid view.
  2. Click Add.
  3. From the Catalog drop-down menu, select a catalog to which you want to upload the media file.
  4. Enter a name for the media file.
    If you do not enter a name, the name text box is populated automatically after the name of the media file.
  5. Click the upload icon () to browse and select the disk image file, for example an .iso file.
  6. Click OK.
    After the upload starts, the media file appears in the grid.
