Previously, when using the new Native USB Policy mode, connected USB devices were always shared regardless of whether the Enable USB Auto-Share option was selected. This issue has been resolved, and USB devices are correctly shared according to their setting in the Enable USB Auto-Share field.

Description Milan Barta 2012-09-12 08:03:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Although option "Enable USB Auto-Share" in User Portal is unchecked when Native USB Policy is used, USB devices are still getting automatically connected to guest system by USBClerk (Windows client).
While the automatic USB device connection feature cannot be disabled yet, this option should be removed or at least disabled (greyed out).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEVM 3.1.0-14.el6ev

Tested on: Windows 7 64-bit client

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure that the VM's USB Policy is set to "Native"
2. Log into the UP and edit Console Options
3. Uncheck the "Enable USB Auto-Share" option and connect to the VM
4. Plug an USB device into the client machine while the RV window is in focus
Actual results:
USB device gets automatically connected to the guest system
RHEVM User Portal lets you disable USB Auto-Share even though it has no effect.

Expected results:
USB device is not automatically connected to the guest system
The "Enable USB Auto-Share" option is disabled or removed from the UP

This bug is actually in mingw-virt-viewer that it does auto-share devices even when it should not, because autoshare is set to false in controller or the device should be blocked by filter settings.
