USB hardware to VM


Aug 12, 2013

I would like to use a hardware protected software. I have installed this software on a VM windows server 2008 R2.

I have done :

qm monitor 102

qm> info usbhost

Bus 5, Addr 86, Port 2, Speed 12 Mb/s
Class ff: USB device 04b9:8000, Sentinel Hardware Key

then I have done :

# qm set 102 -usb0 host=5-2
update VM 102: -usb0 host=5-2

I have rebooted my VM, then I have checked :

# nano /etc/pve/qemu-server/102.conf

usb0: host=5-2

But my software doesn't work because it can't find the key. I have tried with an USB mass storage stick, but I can't access it from the VM windows server.

Do I have to install any addon on the windows server ?

Do you have any idea ?
