    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!

       

       

      Regards,

       

      Matthias.
