Description Michal Skrivanek 2015-06-12 08:19:08 UTC
add info about UsbDk to Console Client Resources (and update wiki upstream)

verify it is available and can be used as a replacement of usbclerk

Comment 1 sefi litmanovich 2015-11-09 16:11:46 UTC
Was able to verify that the links exist under the vm's console options.
also verified that the usbDk 32 bit driver is working in a 32 bit windows, but the installer of the 64 bit driver isn't working for some reason.
In both cases I used windows guests as clients (with latest 3.6.1 guest tools and virt-viewer)
I think on the RHEVM side we can verify this RFE.
I will open a bug for spice regarding the installer.

Verified with rhevm-
host: RHEL 7.2 with vdsm-
to test inserted a usb stick to my client (fedora 22 with spice-xpi installed).
This redirects to the windows 7 vms (both 32 and 64).
From the windows 'client' it redirects via usbDk to rhel 7.1 guest.

David, can you please add more details about UsbDk for the release notes?

I was not sure we need it, as USBDK is already covered in the the rhevm 3.6 documentation. And it is not replacement, but alternative to usb-clerk in rhevm 3.6.
In any case we will update the Doc text field
