On this page, www.ibm.com/support/pages/vmware-vsphere-esxi-41-u3-hypervisor-ibm-customization-v10-ibm-systems-and-lenovo-x86-servers, I am trying to download ibm_sw_hyper_800380v1_vmwaresx4_32-64.iso. The download is not working. I have used FTP from a command line (Windows 10) and I have used WinSCP. Nothing works. How do I download this file?

The attempt to download the file using WinSCP created a log file over 200K lines long. The relevant entries (I assume) are:

  • There is an icon (down arrow icon) to the left of the file. It is working fine in my Linux system here, but does not work in Windows – John Mar 31 at 0:52
  • Windows (Chrome, Chromium Edge) wants to "pick an app" which is incorrect. As I noted I, can do it with Linux. Spin up a Kali machine in Hyper-V, download the file and then map a folder in Windows 10 and transfer it over.That may work. – John Mar 31 at 1:09
  • I did this in Kali in VMware and just know was able to initiate a download in Kali in Hyper-V on another machine. This seems to be the best way forward. – John Mar 31 at 1:21
  • @john I'll try it in Linux Mint first, since I can spin that up in 2 seconds. – mbmast Mar 31 at 1:41
  • @John Forgot to mention, I also got the weird "Pick an app" message. Your suggestion to try a Linux machine was good, but what I wound up doing was just switching to my Mac VM and trying it there. Similar to Windows, the Mac wanted to open Finder when I attempted the download. I said ok, Finder opened and the file downloaded! If you post your suggestion as an answer, I'll accept it. Thx. – mbmast Mar 31 at 1:51

This seems to be the best way forward.

The ibm_sw_hyper_800380v1_vmwaresx4_32-64.iso is a link to 04pc2/3/ibm_sw_hyper_800380v1_vmwaresx4_32-64.iso. The current version of WinSCP does not follow links with FTP protocol. But you can just directly use a URL to the target file:

ftp://download2.boulder.ibm.com/ecc/sar/CMA/XSA/04pc2/3/ibm_sw_hyper_800380v1_vmwaresx4_32-64.iso

Paste the URL to your browser.


The next version of WinSCP will be able to handle the URL with link directly:
