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
