Migrations with vMotion and DRS are supported with USB device passthrough from an ESXi host to a virtual machine.
|Feature||Supported with USB Device Passthrough|
|vSphere Distributed Power Management (DPM)||No|
|vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS)||Yes|
|vSphere Fault Tolerance||No|
For details about migration with vMotion, see Configuring USB Devices for vMotion.
If a host with connected USB devices resides in a DRS cluster with DPM enabled, you must disable DPM for that host. Otherwise DPM might turn off the host with the device, which disconnects the device from the virtual machine.
