Appreciate any suggestions.
VirtualBox 2.0.6 and previous versions all affected.
Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service
(VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) The service might be not installed on the host

lsusb on the running VM shows the 2 hubs with the same vendor:poduct ID's.
/etc/fstab now reads

OK, I eventually found out that VirtualBox-OSE does not support USB. I
downloaded the xVM version from Sun
VirtualBox-2.1.0_41146_openSUSE11-1.x86_64.rpm and installed it on 4
boxes at 11.2 Alpha0. All the USB devices are available to the VM's and
I can now print to the USB printers on this host from any VM on other hosts.
One other improvement is that the local network is also available,
selecting eth0, I get an IP address via DHCP, so each VM is treated as
just another box on the local network, no messing with bridging or
Great work from Sun on this product since the purchase - I think VMWare
in short order has a serious competitor here.
