Can someone please tell me how the USB mapping/redirection works in WVD?


Hi Guys,

We have 24 HP thinclients with latest IGEL OS 580 connecting to WVD spring release. Can someone please tell me how the USB mapping/redirection works.


It currently is not supported by the WVD client

What about this? folder redirection including USB sticks


Yes, but only for USB storage devices and only if you have automount enabled, then it _should_ just work


Where do I enable the automount? In Igel OS the USB device is recognized but its not mounted in wvd

Goto Devices->Storage Devices-> Storage Hotplug and enable “Storage Hotplug” accept the other defaults.

Also verity Devices-Storage Hotplug->Options->Browse directory = userhome/media

When this set, within WVD you should be able to access the usb drives (that will be mapped as folders) under “media on %CLIENTHOSTNAME% in “This PC” using Windows Explorer

You could map it to a driveletter on serverside using eg “net use r: \tsclientmedia”
