The use of USB dongles over the past few years has been used as one of the positive means of protecting the rights of software vendors in the country, although some of them are security-level low, but having an incomplete security There is more to it than not. Of course, this post is not intended to address these issues, and the whole discussion is about the USB connection error in ESXI 6.5 and how to fix it.
Friends who have a lot of experience with these earlier services, especially ESXi, have to remember that we were having trouble connecting these dongles to the virtual machine inside Host, because this hypervisor was completely connected, such as hardware versions There was no initial release until the release of the higher version of the problem and in the final versions of Esxi 5.x, the ability to work in the vMotion process was added to this service. But over the past few weeks
The final version of Esxi 6.5 U1 has been released, it has issues with some of the old dongles that took us to post something on this issue and to solve this problem. Of course, this is based on the contents of the VMware site and other users' experiences.
If you use USB dongles for any reason in your network cyberspace, then upgrading to the latest Patch version 6.0 may run into errors such as not recognizing the dongle or error in its function (for example: The dongles that the company uses is known as the Wibu (
This error appears as it appears on the list of USB device virtual machine hardware, but does not detect the hardware locking software .
Or in the other case, the lock in the ESXI panel is not visible to add to the virtual machine.
But what's the problem and its solution?
This error occurs because the Hypervisor updates to newer versions by itself. The support of the older USB device is deactivated on the Host, and to do this, just enter the following command into the ESXi Shell environment and then reboot the system. do .
esxcli system module set -m = vmkosb -e = FALSE
In fact, by executing this command, the old USB drivers are restarted and the USB dongle is added to the equipment list.
