[SunRay-Users] USB redirection on SRS 5 ea2 not working -- what am I doing wrong?

I meant to follow up on this sooner but I've had my hands full with some
other crises (fun fact: do you now how much a Solaris system can do if
SMF pukes itself? Not much... ). So the issue was indeed old firmware.
Initially when people responded to check firmware I thought "old
firmware? _whatever_ ... of course I have the ea2 firmware! ... in fact
let me just hit stop+v here to prove I'm running ea2 before I hit reply
... oh crap!"

I actually had run utfwsync after installation but the sun ray still had
older firmware on it so I guess I did something wrong during
installation. After I enabled the newer firmware with utfwadm USB
redirection started working correctly. So nothing to see here folks,
move along, just a guy not paying attention.

Thanks again for the help everyone,

If you have utUsbPort showing in device manager, USB redirection has
been setup properly. In order for devices to get redirected you need to
be running EA2 firmware.
