USB devices are not hot pluggable in windows guest if not at least one USB device is plugged in before starting VirtualBox. Devicenodes will however be created under /dev/vboxusb with correct permissions, owner root and group vboxusers.Restarting VirtualBox makes no change, shutting down VirtualBox, logging out and restarting VirtualBox works, one USB device plugged in in both cases. Commenting out the following lines in /usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxCreateUSBNode.sh
"if test "$class" -eq 9; then
works and creates and populates /dev/vboxusb with the same content as /dev/bus/usb.
The crucial thing seems to be that /dev/vboxusb must be created before starting VirtualBox.
- Summary changed from /dev/vboxusb must be created before starting guest to /dev/vboxusb must be created before starting guest => Fixed in SVN
