I am running a number of VMware servers with Windows VMs inside, which require a certain USB dongle. This dongle device is by the manufacturer Kobil and it holds a SIM-card-type ID token that is required by the VM.
Never before have I run into trouble with this.
Now, on my first VMware 6.5 Essentials host, I am able to connect various USB-devices which I tried to test. Flash-Sticks, Tape drives and other devices connect without trouble.
When I try to connect his Kobil dongle, I get:
'path:0/3/0/2/1 version:2' kann nicht mit dieser virtuellen Maschine verbunden werden. Das Gerät wurde nicht gefunden.
which is German and translates to:
'path:0/3/0/2/1 version:2' cannot be connected to this virtual machine. The device was not found.
Does anyone know a work-around other than LAN USB-Server?
