Horizon Client sends USB information to log files.

To specify the USBD log level, add the following parameter in one of the configuration files.

view-usbd.logLevel = "value" 

Use one of the following values for value.

  • trace

  • info

  • debug

  • error

The configuration files are in the following locations and processed in the order listed:

  1. /etc/vmware/config

  2. /usr/lib/vmware/config

  3. ~/.vmware/config

For troubleshooting purposes, you can increase the amount of information sent to USB-specific logs by using the following commands:

  1. Stop the USB arbitrator daemon.

    sudo /etc/init.d/vmware-USBArbitrator stop
  2. Restart the USB arbitrator daemon using the verbose option.

    sudo /usr/lib/vmware/view/usb/vmware-usbarbitrator -verbose

The default USB arbitrator log file is located in /var/log/vmware/vmware-usbarb-<pid>.log, where <pid> is the process id for the USB arbitrator daemon.

To get a list of usage information, use the following command:

sudo /usr/lib/vmware/view/usb/vmware-usbarbitrator -h
