    Default QEMU usb device


    I am a relatively new user of Linux andI am running a server applying Oracle Linux 6.2. I have then appliedQEMU 0.9.0 to run Windows Server 2008 RC2. I have been struggling toacquire my external hard disk and memory sticks to work.


    Therefore only this morning I appliedthe "add hardware" alternative in QEMU to add USB portsthat had my drives were present. They are now visible on the VirtualOS but are disabled. Is there something I am doing wrong? And the-USB commands and alternatives do not work. HELP lest I get firedfrom work...

    You are applying an old edition of Qemu for a begin edition 0.9 had troubles on a USB filter driver: QEMU on Windows

    If the ports are disabled, have you attempted right click and enable? I would be careful with virtualization in general. Commonly its merely applied to test programs. Attempting to link hardware as USB ports may not work as control has to be passed to the host system.

    What you do not say is why to require to run Windows Server 2008. Is there few program that is not available in Oracle Linux? You may be better off dual booting windows and Linux, depending on your requirements.

    Visualization is a temporary measure. We are a small company thus due to lack of funds we have turned to Virtualization to reduce on hardware overheads. Obviously this is a temporary measure while awaiting another server to run Windows Server. Therefore your advising QEMU update is the way to go??? Because I did try enabling the memory sticks to no avail. Yes, the -USB command does not look to work, I am not certain if the kernel I am applying is an older version or the -USB command is specifically applied by QEMU.

    If you are a small company, then test with your IT department or Sysadmin first. I am not certain that a Qemu update will work, but allow me experience if it works.

    I am the IT department but I am more learned in Windows Systems. Considerable, acquired the update and attempted installing and no modifications brought place to the version number. Thus I switched to Virtual Box and it holds affording me one package dependency later another. Linux is actually not affording me a good first impression.

    Considerable to be fair you have began with a distribution that is not considerably applied and few packages are rather out of date, a 2.6.32 kernel. It is not the most active group either. Most modern distributions, e.g. Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux contain virtual box in their repositories. Still, depending on what software you want to run in an emulator, there may be an equivalent in Linux.

    Considerably, I ended up having to reinstall the whole system. This time around I installed all available packages but it looked to have done the trick. I have also switched to Virtual Box and I am presently installing Windows Server 2008. Hopefully Virtual Box will handle the USB interface a whole lot better.

    It worked. Installed VBox 4 and VBox Guest Editions and it did inquires. All my USB ports are available for use on my VMachine.
