Yubikey passthrough does not work

Hello,

I plugged a yubikey on the ESXi to redirect its on a VM :

lsusb | grep 'Yubi'
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1050:0407 Yubico.com Yubikey 4/5 OTP+U2F+CCID

I tried everyting to redirect a usb yubikey to a VM, but nohing works.

I first add to /bootbank/boot.cfg:

kernelopt=autoPartition=FALSE CONFIG./USB/quirks=0x1050:0x0407::0xffff:UQ_KBD_IGNORE

and to /etc/vmware/config:

usb.quirks.device0 = "0x1050:0x0407 allow"

and to the vmx file of the VM:

usb.generic.allowHID = "TRUE"
usb.generic.allowLastHID = "TRUE"
usb.quirks.device0 = "0x1050:0x0407 allow"

But, even after the reboot of the ESXi, the command:

esxcli hardware usb passthrough device list

return nothing :'( :'(

The ESXi is on 7.0.3 version.

Is there a way to passthrough the yubikey ?
