Add external storage exclusion

Before creating exclusions as part of the device control policy, you should first enable device control in a policy, then insert a USB device and examine the logs to ensure the right vendor ID, product ID and serial number are used in the exception.
Consider the following:
  • Not all manufacturers use a serial number with their products. Some manufacturers use the same serial number for multiple products.
  • External storage exclusions are not editable. To update an exclusion, you must delete the existing exclusion (if no longer needed) and add a new one.
  1. In the console, select
    Settings > Device Policy
    from the menu.
  2. Create a new policy or edit an existing policy.
  3. Click the
    Device Control
    tab and make sure Device Control is enabled.
  4. Under External Storage Exclusion List, click
    Add Device
  5. Enter the Vendor ID (required). Include the Product ID and Serial Number to refine the exclusion. You can also add a comment to describe the exclusion.
  6. For Access, select
