Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


I'm using VirtualBox 3.0.2 PUEL edition on a GNU/Linux host : everything works perfectly. My system is on a usb stick and this system stick appears in the list of available usb devices for guests.

If, by mistake, instead of choosing the correct usb device freshly inserted, I check my stick in the list, I freeze the system !

The documentation says """The usbfilter commands are used for working with ... global filters which affect the whole VirtualBox setup. Global filters are applied before machine-specific filters, and may be used to prevent devices from being captured by any virtual machine. Global filters are always applied in a particular order, and only the first filter which fits a device is applied.""".

I tried this : VBoxManage usbfilter add 0 --target global --action ignore --vendorid 1234 --productid 1234 --serialnumber 123456789012. But this has no effect: my stick still appears in the list and so, can be captured. Note that serial number is not returned by the command VBoxManage list usbfilters.

Thanks for VirtualBox.
