I recently installed ESXI on a new machine for some virtualization testing. Being new to this particular technology, I'm having trouble with USB support. I've read a number of articles on support for version 4.0, but I am currently running 5.0.0. The software applications we're going to be running on this machine require a USB Dongle to be plugged in order for the software to function, but when I plug any device in (like a hard drive), the drive does not recognize anything.
I've installed a third party usb controller card in the machine, but it doesn't seem to matter which port (on the motherboard or not) I plug it into, I cannot successfully detect anything.
Any help would be appreciated!
