  • 1.  USB data not being sent when using USB passthrough

    Posted Sep 22, 2017 01:25 PM

    I am trying to pass a USB device though to a VM, The first device I set up worked with the passthrough however its boot-loader mode and another one of the devices appear in the VM but i am unable to use it. I have tried removing the USB device and reattaching in the VM settings and by physical unplugging. It appears as though USB traffic on endpoints other than 0 (the control endpoint) aren't being sent between the device and the VM. has anyone else encountered this issue or knows how to resolve it.

    Thanks

    Please confirm that the USB device is supported for passthrough from ESXi. For more information, see KB 1021345.
