Those of us in the local DCS team talked about this approach today. Besides the 
lockable cabinet can have air filtration equipment installed to eliminate some 
of our wonderful environmental concerns.

But kbs and mice are mostly hot-pluggable, so locking all the USB ports except 
those in use doesn't prevent someone from unplugging the mouse or kb and 
sticking in a memory stick.
Short of hard-coding those USB ports to specific hardware (if it's possible), 
the only solution is locking the processor in a cabinet - in which case all the 
ports are protected and none must be locked.
Kind of a catch-22.

Robert,

USB mass storage devices can be disabled by the use of 2 small bat files.

You can add them to the env files to enable or disable them.

It's not 100% fool proof, If you leave the USB storage device in the PC and do 
a change env, the files is locked and can't be renamed.

add the following to the env.dms file

dmcmd run start D:/opt/customer/scripts/USB_ON.bat or dmcmd run start 
D:/opt/customer/scripts/USB_OFF.bat

USB_ON.bat

Onderwerp: [foxboro] Windsnows Question

To those that use Windows everyday this may sound silly, but. Is there any way 
to lock down the USB ports not used by keyboard, mouse ect? In my dream world I 
could lock down unused USB port(s) except when you are logged in as System 
Engineer or other password protected environments.
Thank you in advance for any information
