Autoconnecting USB devices to remote ESXi

This post was originally published on this site


I have a VM running on a ESXi server, a tablet connected to my desktop PC via USB and I am able to pass it to the VM via both VMRC and Workstation. The only thing that I am not able to do is automatic passthrough: when I reboot the tablet (which behaves exactly like turning it off and then on again) I need to make it automatically reconnect to the same VM on the EXSi server (the same way as Workstation when it sets a connection rule for a given  VM). Is there a way to accomplish this (any way, even a scripting language would do)?

Thank you in advance
