    USB / External Drive can't see in esxi server terminal

    jb05 Lurker

      Hello,

       

      I'm try to add usb/external drive as datastore, and base on my research after turning off the usbarbirator the usb should see in the list below.
      But in my scenario I can't see either one of them. I also added usb.log. I'm a newbie with ESXi so I'm not really sure where to look at.

       

      Client Version: 1.25.0

      ESXi Version: 6.7.0

      usb.log
