    Add a USB Passthrough Device to a Virtual Machine

    You can add one or more USB passthrough devices to a virtual machine. The physical devices must be connected to the ESX/ESXi host on which the virtual machine runs.

    Prerequisites

    -Verify that the virtual machine is using hardware version 7 or later.
    -If a USB device is connected to another virtual machine, you cannot add it until that machine releases it.
    -The USB controller must be present. Add a USB controller, if needed. See Add a USB Controller to a Virtual Machine.
    -Make sure that you know the virtual machine requirements for USB devices. See USB Device Passthrough Configuration from an ESX/ESXi Host to a Virtual Machine.

    To use vMotion to migrate a virtual machine with multiple USB devices, you must enable all attached USB devices for vMotion. You cannot migrate individual USB devices. For vMotion limitations, see Configuring USB Passthrough Devices for vMotion.

    If you do not plan to migrate a virtual machine with USB devices attached, deselect the Support vMotion option when you add the USB device. This reduces migration complexity, which results in better performance and stability.
