VMware ESXi offers the ability to redirect USB devices from your Workstation to a VM located on a ESXi Server.
There 3 requirments:
- VM must have at least virtual machine version 7
- A virtual USB Controller must be add to the VM
- VMWare Tools must installed within the virtual machine
Add a USB Controller
choose a EHCI-UHCI (USB 2) Controller, in the past I sometimes used a xHCI (USB 3) had several problems with it.
If add the controller is added and driver installed the USB Icon in vSphere Client toolbar appears colored.
