I need/want to mount a 1TB USB HDD to my ESX server and add it as a new Drive for one of my Windows Server 2003 VM's so I can copy File data from it and then take it and do the same thing on another ESX host and Windows Server 2003 host, the reason I am trying to do it this way is one of my environments is isolated and shares none of the same infrastructure but I have to move the data, any help would be appreciated.,
I don't think USB devices are supported. I would suggest IP based storage. That's what I did. I bought a little DLink device and copy my VMs for safe keeping.
