Some links on USB pass-through for ESXi

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/03/23

For my link archive (especially because when disconnecting USB devices, the path value needs to be uber-correct, while for connecting, the path value only needs to be a partial match):

Commands applicable:

  • lsusb
  • the /var/log/vmkernel.log file filtered on usb (in a case insensitive way)
  • vim-cmd vmsvc/device.getdevices
  • vim-cmd vmsvc/device.connusbdev
  • vim-cmd vmsvc/device.disconnusbdev
