I’m migrating my home to an ESXi 6.5 server. Most everything seems to be working just fine except I cannot get my zwave dongle to work.
I’ve plugged the dongle directly into the host machine, no hubs or other things to get in the way.
I’ve configured the USB passthrough by adding it as a new USB device to the VM and it shows up just fine.
The zwave binding is able to connect to the device and communicated with it at least well enough to download the nodes and add the Things to the inbox. However, the Things never resolve to their device type. They remain unknown.
All of the nodes currently added to the controller are mains powered.
Open Zwave Control Panel seems perfectly able to interrogate and communicate with the controller on this same VM. At least there are no errors and everything appears as it should.
I’ve moved the controller back to the old laptop and after a little bit longer than expected it was able to resolve all of the devices.
Has anyone experienced the same problem and solved it, or have any advice for how to get this to work?
