USB passthrough crashed ESX

I connected USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 to ESXi 6.7 and set passthrough to VM. The Esx kept rebooting randomly every several hours. If I remove USB 2.0 controller and leave USB 3.0 on the VM, host and VM work fine.

Is it a bug on Esx 6.7?

DELL PowerEdge R440, Dell custom Esxi 6.7 A03. Dell engineer checked, no hardware issue with the server.

Hi AllBurn,

Check whether the issue occurs on VMware provided build : download it from vmware  downloads page.  At times the custom vibs interfere and they cause such behaviors.

If issue is not there with vmware provided build. Raise complaint with dell custom iso team and they will take up with vmware.

If you are looking for immediate relief , try updating to latest build.

Please upvote .

Thanks.
