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
