Hi,

We have 2 ESXi 5 hosts DL360 G7 (essential pack), which we should connect more than 3 USB devices to.

Can anyone please suggest what's the best way to perform it without adding a USB card (we need the expansion slot for more NIC's)?

I thought of USB over Network solution, will it do the trick?

Thanks in advance
