To use peripheral SCSI devices, such as printers or storage devices, you must add the device to the virtual machine. When you add a SCSI device to a virtual machine, you select the physical device to connect to and the virtual device node.
For SCSI controller and virtual device node assignments and behavior, see SCSI and SATA Storage Controller Conditions, Limitations, and Compatibility.
- Right-click a virtual machine in the inventory and select Edit Settings.
- On the Virtual Hardware tab, select SCSI Device from the New device drop-down menu and click Add.
The SCSI device appears in the Virtual Hardware devices list.
- Expand New SCSI device to change the device options.
- (Optional) From the Virtual Device Node drop-down menu, select the virtual device node.
