VMware Workstation 9: Assign one USB hub to each virtual machine - how?
Posted on 2013-05-13
Can anyone explain to me how I can assign one USB hub to each virtual machine?
I know it is possible to do so with a USB device by:
1. Identify and obtain the USB device's vendor ID and product ID as reported by the host operating system.
2. Edit the virtual machine's configuration file (.vmx) to contain an autoConnect entry for the USB device.
...but how do I do that with a HUB? For example, could I assign one specific built in USB-port on the host directly to one of the virtual machines?
My goal is that whenever I plug in USB devices on a specific USB HUB (differs from time to time and it's not the same items each time) I want them automatically to show up in virtualmachine1 and so on.
Thanks in advance :)
