USB not detected over serial interface.

Saad had a USB over serial interface question:

 

*********************

 

I have BL680c G7 servers with ESXi 4.1 U1 and I want to connect USB device (Serial to USB converter) to this server.

  

When I connect USB device to BL680c G7, it does not physically detect USB device. ( LED does not start to work)

 

Is there any configuration from bios to enable USB?

 

Note: When I connect the same device to BL460c G7 server with Redhat, LED automatically starts to work.

The Knowledge Brief talks about ..."However, ESXi 4.1.x and earlier versions do not. All versions of ESX support physical serial and parallel ports."
