Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

It is impossible to create usb global filter with Product or Product ID defined. Because of this filter not work at all. Command line:

vboxmanage usbfilter add 1 --target global --name "Logitech USB Receiver [3811]" --action ignore --active yes --vendorid 046d --productid c517 --revision 3811 --manufacturer Logitech --product "USB Receiver"

causes bad filter definition in VirtualBox.xml

<DeviceFilter name="Logitech USB Receiver [3811]" active="true" vendorId="046d" productId="c517" revision="3811" manufacturer="Logitech" action="Ignore"/>

After adding second filter or restating some virtual machine it changes to (productId is removed):

DeviceFilter name="Logitech USB Receiver [3811]" active="true" vendorId="046d" revision="3811" manufacturer="Logitech" action="Ignore"/>

If we add proper definition manually:

  <DeviceFilter name="Logitech USB Receiver [3811]" active="true" vendorId="046d" productId="c517" revision="3811" manufacturer="Logitech" product="USB Receiver" action="Ignore"/>

We receive ERROR message and VirtualBox does not start at all:

ERROR: failed to create the VirtualBox object!
ERROR: Encountered unexpected status VERR_NO_DIGITS when setting 'Product ID' to 'USB Receiver'
