    Connecting "Delock External Enclosure for M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD with SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) USB Type-C" to VMware FUSION

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to connect a

      Delock External Enclosure for M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD with SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) USB Type-C

      Delock Products 42600 Delock External Enclosure for M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD with SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) USB Ty…

      to a VMware Host running Ubuntu Linux.

       

       

      So far I tried an Ubuntu install I have and then ubuntu-18.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso Live system after running:

           apt-get update

           apt install open-vm-tools

           It runs a kernel 5 so it suits the kernel version requirements of the vendor Delock.

       

      My questions:

      1. Is it possible to make this work?

      2. Or won't this work as it is a USB 3.1 Gen-2 device?

      3. When will VMware Fusion support USB 3.1 Gen-2 devices ?

       

      Thanks a lot in advance for any feedback / hint on this!
