Vsphere-iso and cd_files

Hello all, still attempting to configure an almalinux template with packer and I have a question about the cd_files function in the vsphere-iso builder.

I’ve read the instructions, in that cd_files (string) - A list of files to place onto a CD that is attached when the VM is booted. This can include either files or directories; any directories will be copied onto the CD recursively, preserving directory structure hierarchy, etc, but what I want to do is to then copy the files from the “CD” that the VM boots from so that the files are included in the template.

Question is simple: where is the “CD” mounted during installation, so that I can perform a simple cp -r from somewhere, to the user directory, or /tmp?
