    Re: USB Vmware insfraestructure 3.5

    According to a Google hit * :

    USB attachments are not currently supported for virtual machines running under VMware Infrastructure 3
    Whether this is also the case for 3.5, I don't know.

    What have you tried?

          Plug the pen drive into another machine and copy the data over the network?

          Not really sure what else you want us to suggest. If you're asking here for solutions, then obviously you've not found anything via Google.

              Perhaps USB support will be available in future versions of ESX.

              Here's one solution (albeit expensive for what you want to do):
              http://www.digi.com/products/usb/anywhereusb.jsp

              The short answer is that USB doesn't fit the best in VI where we plan to have multiple hosts in a cluster, DRS, etc. Plugging a USB device into an ESX host pins the VM to that host.
