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!!!
