USB 3.0 passthrough - kernel: usb 1-3.1: reset high-speed...

i just installed pve 5.0-30 on an intel nuc DN2820FYKH. All works good except the passthrough of USB 3.0.
I need to access a usb-harddrive with an Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard-VM.
The VM can see the port and disk (f.e. usb-device in device-manager and drive letter shows up within explorer), but cannot access it.

pve's syslog shows many entries like this:

Sep 12 18:19:43 pve01 kernel: usb 1-3.1: reset high-speed USB device number 14 using xhci_hcd

The passthrough with USB 2.0 works. I tried different USB-drives without success.

One curious thing:

If i passthrough the same USB 3.0-Port/Drives to an Debian Stretch-VM it works, then there are only a view reset-messages within syslog when the Debian-VM starts up.

Is there an chance to get this working with Windows?

Thanks forward.

Best regards,
