I am testing out a Wyse Xenith (1.0.0_34) with USB thumb drives utilizing XenDesktop 4 that is running off provisioning services and I have two questions.
1) If a USB thumb drive does not have a PID/VID (Product/Vendor ID) will it work on the Xenith? (The Event Log detects the thumb drive as a “WYSE VUSB” device”
2) If I launch the XP VDI w/ a Kingston thumb drive inserted (Event Log detects it as a Mass Storage device and assigned a drive letter) it is detected and works. If i insert it while the XP VDI is running it is not detected until i logoff and log back on. I am looking for a fix to make sure it gets detected while VDI is up.7. November 2010 at 21:39 #19306
Looks like you haven’t enabled the Citrix policy to use USB mapping.
Check the policy in the Presentation Server console.

Once i authenticate/connect to the XenDesktop Broker Server and select “Global Connection Settings” then ICA tab I have to check the “Map all disks under (Z:)” . I have to have the thumb drive in the usb slot before launching the XP XenDesktop and the Z: appears and i can access the data, afterwards the Z: remains and i can place thumb drives in the xenith while the XP Xendesktop is loaded and access data from thumb drives.
Either im doing something wrong or it seems a bit flaky..16. November 2010 at 15:20 #19376
Map all disk under Z: is a parameter to enable some kind of dynamic USB Storage mapping.
So yes, this will work in your environment.
But if you enable the USB Mapping policy via PS console, it will work dynamically even without that function.

In PS Console I have one policy enabled that effects my XD farm..
Under Client Devices / Resources / USB / – I have it enabled w/ Allow mapping of client USB devices
Under Client Devices / Resources / Drives – I have Connection enabled and Connect Client drives at Logon, Mappings are enabled with nothing turned off
So if i understand you correctly I do not need to enabled Map all disk under z: ?
What is also interesting is that the xenith will map the thumb drive to d: in the event log, but i already have a drive setup at D: , maybe that is part of the issue?

Check on the Xenith if USB mapping is enabled. And try disabling Drive mapping.
