Description Han Pilmeyer 2013-06-06 08:34:34 EDT
Description of problem:
When creating or changing the hardware configuration of a KVM guest using virt-manager, you have the possibility to add a "Controller USB" device. You can also specify the model of this device. The two options for model are "Default" and "USB 2". I incorrectly assumed that these two would be the same. When using USB redirection through a SPICE client to the KVM guest, I could not get the redirection to work. It became clear that this only works when the model for "Controller USB" is set to "USB 2".

I would like to suggest that the default for adding a "Controller USB" device to a KVM guest is changed to "USB 2".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Create a guest with the Default Controller USB model and try to redirect a host USB device to the guest using for instance virt-viewer. The USB device on the host can be selected, but it fails immediately. Then change to "USB 2" and it will work.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Fixed upstream, we use USB2 as the default for new guests
