While the VMware Web Client, when I purchase a basic license of VMware (including vCenter) is really good, I’ve heard, I need a means of accessing the VMware host using SSH.
-MacOS has a built in SSH functionality for accessing remote hosts
-Enabled SSH within the ESXi host
-Used the Mac’s built in terminal for SSH vs some downloaded application
/etc/init.d/usbarbitrator status (returns usbarbitrator is running)
esxcli hardware usb passthrough device list (returns a timeout)
Note: Maybe the USB passthrough is not quite enabled
vmware -v (Returns VMware ESXi 6.7.0 build-10302608)
lsusb (Returns nothing)
Note: When not using SSH, my best practice is to back into the host and disable it.
