usb simple questions

Jump to solution

Hi guys

If i wanted to disable usb entirely , is it the policy in view administrator is the best place to do it ? or is it better to allow it there and disable via gpo ?

also if i allow a class with 23xxxx - does that allow all usb  ?

if you want absolute confidence that usb is disabled (as some customers want in highly security conscious workplaces) then they will often NOT install the usb components on the guest vm during the agent install. Without these, then usb won't work at all.

you can use either option for disabling usb. Doing so via GPO might give you more flexibility than just doing it on a per pool basis.

also if i allow a class with 23xxxx - does that allow all usb?

- i don't understand what you are asking here. can you elaborate?


cheers
