How does the USB hub work in ESXi 5.5?
« on: June 14, 2014, 06:20:31 AM »

I'm playing around with virtualising my HTPCs now and want to assign devices using the built in ports to the motherboards (do not need usb3 in my case).  Now, I don't appear to be able to pass through USB ports to each VM (apart from the USB3 one) unlike Xenserver which I can... So after adding a USB Hub to the VM in the settings, how do I assign things like keyboards etc?

Am I better of with one of those highpoint cards that give 4 usb3 ports as that might allow devices that sleep to work better?
