Hi to all,
i have installed esx3.5i on a server and i have migrated a win2003 standard edition to this server, all is working but if i try to map a physical serial port to the vm from infrastructure client the physical com is grey and i can choose only named pipe or file name.
Is possible to resolve this issue? I have forgot something? I need to connect a serial modem to the server for the microsoft fax service.
Thanks and best regards,
I would recommend another solution than using a physical serialport in a host. You can buy devices that live on the network like serial, parallel and usb devices. This eliminates that vm's are bound the a physical host and allows you to add more devices. I have a USB dongle on the network because of one of our applications requires it.
