I got the same problem, have you got it resolved ?
I'm trying to assign a USB3 controller to a CentOS 7.4 VM in oVirt 4.1
with USB redirection enabled.
I've created the following file in /etc/ovirt-engine/osinfo.conf.d:
01-usb.properties with content
os.other.devices.usb.controller.value = nec-xhci
and have restarted ovirt-engine.
If I disable USB-support in the web interface for the VM, the xhci
controller is added to the VM (I can see it in the qemu-kvm
commandline), but usb redirection is not available.
If I enable USB-support in the UI, no xhci controller is added (only 4
Is there a way to make the controllers for usb redirection xhci controllers?
