Can't find Device ID of USB printer.

Created: 25 Jan 2013 | 1 comment

We have some people with Lexmark USB printers that are being blockd by our Device Control Policy.

I want to exclude some Lexmark USB printers (like Lexmark x260d) but I can't see this in the Device Manager or in the DevViewer utilitiy.

So how can I exlude it from blocking in my SEP 12.1 environment If I can't see it?

What is showing in the Control log?

See the option outlined for excluding in this KB article:
