Same problem here... I tried the steps above, no luck... Any solution?
Knappe, your solution worked for me. Thanks!
Sorry to redirect an old thread...
but im having similar issues.
I cannot connect any USB storage device to any virtual machine, on any physical machine!
Tried 3 laptops now.
reading knappes answer, I'm assuming these commands are simply run on the host in command prompt?
Thanks for any help.
I have a similar problem. I have ESXi 6.0 and added a USB Adapter to a virtual machine. But it won't recognize the 5 TB external HD I have attached to the server. I tried the step outlined by Knappe, but the didn't fix the issue for me.
