How to Mount USB Device to Oracle VM Guest? (Doc ID 2303821.1)

Last updated on MAY 20, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64


OVM Manager has no feature to attach an USB Device directly to VM Guest (DomU). This KM will show a workaround on how to manually mount an USB Device to VM Guest (DomU).

Note: We will modify VM Guest (DomU) configuration (vm.cfg) manually, which is not recommended in Oracle VM, as this is a workaround only. And any manual modification will be overwritten by OVM Manager GUI “Edit” operation.
