Hi Experts,

I need to attach a USB drive to one of two physical hosts on which a virtual machine resides as I want to run backups from that guest machine (Windows 2003). I have the USB drive attached to the host and have added a USB controller to the guest but I still don't  see the USB drive showing up in the host or the guest when I rescan disks. Any advise? The USB is 2.0
