Why my RHEL client does not automatically redirect already plugged in USB devices?

Solution Verified - Updated -


USB devices that are permanently plugged-into the client machine are not automatically redirected to the guest, once Spice session is started.
The devices appear on the ignored devices list instead.

If you re-plug the device once the spice session is in focus, USB redirection works fine.
