An ISO is an electronic file that contains the identical content of an optical disc, including the folder and file hierarchy. Using an .ISO file extension, ISO images are created to distribute the disc’s data over a network in order to burn a CD or DVD at the destination computer.

In Turbonomic, these images can be reported as wasted storage, which can throw off reports. You can avoid this by updating the Default Storage Policy Storage Settings to ignore these files.

The method for updating Turbonomic offline is via an ISO.
