Unfortunately even front USB ports on chassis, which could be managed to any blade server, are no compatible with all USB devices.
The only really working way out for USB dongles are network dongle solution. I don’t know what dongle are you using, but for example Aladdin has network dongles and I think it’s not the single case.

Can you please let me know if you have resolved issue with USB. I'm also having the same issue.
can we dedicate a usb for a particular blade,if so for many blades we can assign dedicated usb devices?
I would appreciate your help.
