    ESXi 5.5 and host USB devices.

    Skeesicks Novice

      Hi community,



      I am just trying to connect a USB-HDD which is connected to the host to a guest operating system and failed!


      The USB device lists via "lsusb" on the host, but I have no idea how to connect it to a guest.


      I tired via "Settings" and "Add Hardware" thru the vSphere client and the USB device does not show up!


      If I use the "Connect USB devices" button in vSphere client, I only can connect USB devices connected to the management station.



      Is there any possibility to connect USB devices connected to the host?



      Hope you can help me!
