 hardware device to the Hardware Devices list

After you obtain a class ID or device ID for a hardware device, you can add the hardware device to the default Hardware Devices list. You can then access this default list from the device control part of the Application and Device Control policy.

To add hardware devices to the Hardware Devices list

  1. In the console, click Policies.
  2. Under Policies, expand Policy Components and click Hardware Devices.
  3. Under Tasks, click Add a Hardware Device.
  4. Enter the name of the device you want to add.

    Both Class IDs and Device IDs are enclosed in curly braces by convention.

  5. Select either Class ID or Device ID, and paste the ID that you copied from the Windows Device Manager or the DevViewer tool.
  6. You can use wildcard characters to define a set of device IDs. For example, you can use the following string: *IDE\DVDROM*.
  7.  Click OK.

Obtaining a class ID or device ID

You can use the Symantec DevViewer tool to obtain either the class ID (GUID) or the device ID. You can use Windows Device Manager to obtain the device ID.

After you obtain a device ID, you can modify it with a wildcard character to indicate a less specific group of devices.

To obtain a class ID or device ID by using the DevViewer tool

1.    On your product disc, locate the \TOOLS\NOSUPPORT\DEVVIEWER folder, and then download the DevViewer.exe tool to the client computer.

2.    On the client computer, run DevViewer.exe.

3.    Expand the Device Tree and locate the device for which you want the device ID or the GUID.

For example, expand DVD-ROM drives and select the device within that category.

4.    In the right-hand pane, right-click the device ID (which begins with [device ID]), and then click Copy Device ID.

5.    Click Exit.

6.    On the management server, paste the device ID into the list of hardware devices.

To obtain a device ID from Control Panel

1.    On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Settings > Control Panel > System.

2.    On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.

3.    In the Device Manager list, double-click the device.

4.    In the device's Properties dialog box, on the Details tab, select the Device ID.

By default, the Device ID is the first value displayed.

5.    Press Control+C to copy the ID string.

6.    Click OK or Cancel.
