How to set COM/USB redirection in Azure VM outside a HostPool ?

To set COM/USB redirection inside RDP properties of Host Pool. But I do not have a hostpool BUT already create a VM in the Azure. How could I set the COM/USB redirection in Azure VM without a HostPool ? Thanks!


I plugin an ATEN USB-2-COM adapter and it can show a new COM port under Device Manager on my local machine (after driver installed).
Expect it can show inside the VM.

@Wallace-2189 Apologies for the delay in response and all the inconvenience caused because of the issue.

As per this you can follow below steps:

First, set the following RDP property to enable USB device redirection:

usbdevicestoredirect:s:* enables USB device redirection.
usbdevicestoredirect:s: disables USB device redirection.

Second, set the following Group Policy on the user's local device:

  • Navigate to Computer Configuration > Policies> Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Connection Client > RemoteFX USB Device Redirection.

  • Select Allows RDP redirection of other supported RemoteFX USB devices from this computer.

  • Select the Enabled option, and then select the Administrators and Users in RemoteFX USB Redirection Access Rights box.

  • Select OK.

Hope it helps!!!

Had applied that settings already in Azure and local group policy but it does not working.
(after the adapter driver installed in VM)

Do we expect the local COM port number should show as the same in the VM ?
