CloudShare’s Upload Files feature enables you to easily upload files to a virtual machine in your environment. With this feature, you can conveniently complete tasks by uploading files (including batch, integration, data and other types) and then use them during your training exercise or POC demo.
With the Upload Files feature, you can also upload configuration or executable files to work more efficiently with the files you need in the virtual machine.
Files need to be uploaded per machine, per class.
Uploading Files to Your Class Environment
Within your environment, select the relevant VM, and from the left side settings panel of the Viewer, click File Upload. The Upload Your Files popup dialog will appear:
Click Upload Files, and use the file browser to locate and select the files you want to upload. Alternatively, you can drag-and-drop files from a folder into the area specified on the popup. While there are no limitations on the number of files or file types you can upload, there are some file size and naming restrictions.
When a file upload completes successfully, a green checkmark will appear next to the uploaded file. If there is an upload error, a red notification will appear.
To see where your files are saved, click Where are my files?. They'll be in a folder called Uploads, whose exact location is determined by the machine's operating system. For Windows, this is C:\Uploads; for Linux, the location is the admin home folder, sorted alphabetically (we will choose the first admin user to run).
If the File Upload section is disabled in the sidebar, ensure that VMWare tools have been installed and are running on your virtual machine. For Windows-based VMs, PowerShell Version 2.0 or higher is required.
Uploaded files must meet the following requirements:
Files cannot be larger than 50 MB.
Filenames can only contain the following characters: a-z, 0-9, ‘-‘, ‘_’, ‘.’, and spaces.
If two files are uploaded with the same name on the same machine, the first file to download to the machine will be overwritten (if two upload requests occur simultaneously, it can also be the second one).
If the file upload fails for a particular VM, your training instructor or POC demo creator can access your environment details page and click the Resolve (Recommended) link, as shown below.
