DLP 9.2 - can't define device exceptions because no valid device serial number?

Hi all,

in DLP Device Control i have configured a storage device rule for blocking usb storage devices.

I've configured following parameters:

bus type: USB

Filesystem type: exfat, fat, fat16, fat32, NTFS

This works fine.

Now i want to configure exceptions for some devices.

Usually i use the serial number of the device for the DLP device definition.

This works fine also.

The problem is now - some devices have no valid device serial numbers because

they contains some &'s and so on.

I've tryed using the device-instance-id and device name and others but no success result.

Anyway, the devices which i want to permit are no junk-devices like cheap usb sticks or so.

There are expensive dictation devices for example.

Is that somehow manageable now??

Maybe you can help me

Thanks

Ruediger

Device Instance ID would be the best way to identify these devices. What happened when you tried to use them?

Have you an idea?

Hello ruediger,

So. I understand that you want to make an exception for an USB device.

Step 1. Create a  plug and play general USB device definition.

Step 2. Block it with an device rule.

Step 3. After the blocking event reaches the DLP monitor go there and export the device parameters in a .csv file

Step 4. Go on DLP policy and create a plug and play definition importing the file that you've just created.

Step 5. Add this new created device as a exception on  the  device rule used on step 2.

Hope it helps,
