USB Disk Errors on Mint 19 VMware Guest

Connecting a physical USB device to a virtual machine is sometimes tricky. Virtual machines are not really designed for physical interaction. In this case, it was necessary to mount a 1 TB external USB disk to a VMware virtual machine running Linux Mint 19.3. USB errors were seen and the disk would not connect. The fix was very simple.

 

Connecting the Disk :

A USB disk was connected to a Linux laptop running VMware Workstation 15.5.1, and hosting a Linux Min 19.3 guest. When the connection “button” (at the bottom right of the VMware window) was pressed, these errors appeared in the guest’s kernel log:

[Tue Mar  3 22:51:30 2020] sched: RT throttling activated
[Tue Mar  3 22:58:17 2020] usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 6 using ehci-pci

USB Errors like this are very common. There are many causes and many potential solutions, some of them quite esoteric. In this case though, the solution was very simple.

 

Quick Solution :

The fix was to edit the virtual machine settings in VMware, and change the USB specification from “USB 2.0” to “USB 3.0”. With that done, the disk connected without a problem. More explicitly:

VM settings -> USB Controller -> USB compatibility -> change USB 2.0 to USB 3.0.

The physical USB port was indeed USB 3, as was the external disk. One strange thing is that the arrangement (USB 2.0) had worked until a day or two earlier.

Change Allowed In Items Primary UOM in Oracle EBS R12.2.9 And Higher Versions

Allowed to change Item’s Primary UOM in Oracle EBS R12.2.9 and higher versions

 

Prior to Oracle EBS R12.2.9, Item’s Primary Unit Of Measure(UOM) can be selected only at the time of item creation and cannot be updated once the item is saved.

There is a new feature added in Oracle EBS 12.2.9 latest version, where it is allowed change item’s primary UOM after the item is created When no transactions exist like material transactions, Sales Orders, Purchase Orders, Work Orders, Onhand etc.,

Item’s UOM won’t be updated if there are transactions or related records exists. This is to Maintain data Integrity and avoid corruption.

  1. Creating “VM TEST” master item with primary uom as Each.

2. Extending “VM TEST” item to M1 inventory org.

oracle application,oracle ebs,oracle master item,oracle inventory master items,oracle apps dba

3. Query “VM TEST” item in M1 inventory org.

oracle application,oracle ebs,oracle master item,oracle inventory master items,oracle apps dba

Initially the item is created with primary UOM as “Each”. This item is newly created and there are no transactions exist.

4. Change primary uom from EACH to EA in the master item form ( primary UOM is master controlled item attribute) -> A concurrent request will be submitted when UOM is changed and saved.

5. It runs “EGO Spreadsheet Java Concurrent Program” process and completes normal when the UOM is changed.

oracle application,oracle ebs,oracle master item,oracle inventory master items,oracle apps dba,EGO Spreadsheet Java Concurrent Program

Note: The concurrent program will have error like below if there are any transactions exists.

MESSAGE NAME: INV_UOM_CANNOT_UPDATE
ERROR MESSAGE : You cannot update UOM field when the inventory transactions exist in current or one of child orgs.

6. Re-Query “VM TEST” in the organization items form for M1 inventory org. You can see that primary UOM is changed to EA
