windows server 2003 standard and ESXi 5.0
Posted on 2012-04-07
I just converted a windows 2003 Standard server to a virtual machine using the Stand-a-lone vmware converter. All went well except there is a splat in the device manager saying it needs a driver for usb controller. After the conversion I am not able to get the vm to show the usb external hard drive. Using vsphere client 5 which allows me to add the usb controller and the usb device, WD 1 TB my essentials HD, but will not show up in the windows 2003 server vm. It appears that windows 2003 standard does not have the needed usb driver. Can anyone tell me where to go and find this driver so I can have usb pass through from the host to the vm.
