vSphere - Attaching a USB device to a VM does not work

The vSphere client offers to add a USB device to a VM.

So you theoretically can attach a USB stick to the ESX server and redirect it to the VM.















As I was told by VMware, this option should have been hidden in the RTM product since it is only planned for a future update.

It is also not implemented yet so that adding the USB controller has no effect to the VM.


VMware plans to release a KB about this soon.
