Ticket #1403 (closed defect: obsolete)
vbox doesn't grab USB devices after insertion with open criteria
|Reported by:||grantmasterflash||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
If a filter is set up for a particular USB device then vbox will grab it and it will show up in the guest's lsusb output. This behavior is consistent no matter when the USB device is plugged in (before or after the VM boots)
If the filter is open so it's supposed to match everything vbox will grab the USB device only if it was plugged in before virtual machine starts. If the USB device is plugged in after the virtual machine is running lsusb shows nothing unless a users selects the device in the Device menu.
Make the behavior the same everywhere. If you have an open filter to match everything vbox should grab all USB devices when they're plugged in and pass them to the guests.
