No USB in Add Hardware Wizard

Jump to solution

My ESX server has 2 physical USB ports on the back of it. I am using the Infrastructure Client to add hardware to my VMs. My Add Hardware Wizard gives me the options of Serial Port, Parallel Port, Floppy Drive, CD/DVD Drive, Ethernet Adapter, and Hard Disk. It also lists a greyed out option, SCSI Device(unavailable). Why can't I add the USB ports to a VM?

Because USB is not supported.

Thanks, that document and its references were very helpful. One of the USB over TCP/IP products listed is made by Tripp Lite, so I should have one available to try out soon. Smiley Happy
