vmware workstation, like its named implies is for workstations. Things are kinda different on server.

There is some support for usb passthrough in vanilla xen (http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_USB_Passthrough). However I've not heard about support for this in xenserver.

Anyway I would advise you to use usb over ip adapter to deal with this problem. Indeed when you migrate a VM, a physicaly attached dongle would have some issue migrating by itself at the same time.
