USB support

Is USB supported in ESX 3.0.2 or ESX 3.5?

I have a need to create a license server. I would like to create the vm in one of our HA clusters. The license server uses a usb hardware key so I am not sure if this is possible. I know about three years ago is was not supported.

Thanks

Still not supported, but what you can do is get a USB-to-IP device and connect your VM to the USB device that way. I Digi makes one.
