ESXi and usb pass-through
« on: July 16, 2010, 04:17:46 pm »
I know there are a few people running LinuxMCE on vmware ESXi.  Has anyone tried to get a usb z-wave controller working using usb pass-through under ESXi 4.1?

I have been able to get usb pass through to work with KVM for my zwave stick.

I did a lmce presentation and a demo from my Fedora Linux laptop with lmce running inside VirtualBox. ZWave usb stick worked without issues, just install takes ages.

It also works fine on the normal VMWare workstation which you can install on top of linux or Windows. I have been running a DVB stick in this way for several months with no issue.
