Import VMwarePlayer VM to ESXi server? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Are you sure by controller you can't just use the motherboard's onboard controllers? We've done this on a couple rackmounts but not all of them (Dell R810), even with VT-D, could we get it to work. This was for USB NIC and radio ...

Out of curiosity, which version of esx are you on?

ESXI 6. also you for sure can NOT passthrough any HID device of any kind what so ever, thum drivers, USB sound cards, wifi modules you name it and you CAN but, no KBs and mouses, no way no how! HOWEVER, i did passthrough a the video card like wanted AND i did finda way to passthrough HID devices using a software called net usb. found at net-usb.com/

OH and this particular OS doesn't necessarily like being handed an entire USB controller. Other wise that probably would have worked but, still not really doable since this mobo only has 2 USB port and the only legacy PCI ports are connected to the onboard video so can't forward a PCI USB controller. it also had no issue passing through my USB sound card, i think i install PCI USB card without having to pass it through,
