Allow specific USB devices on citrix thin clients

polstj used Ask the Experts™

We are running Citrix with thin clients on server 2003 with 2008 R2 domain controllers (domain function level 2008 R2).  Right now we have disabled all removable devices in group policy.  

Is it possible to keep removable devices disabled but allow specific USB sticks that have been previously approved by the IT department?

If not, is it possible to do so with 3rd party applications that will work in a domain?

We did the following step. We have enabled the citrix policy to allow removable devices through citrix session and we configured SEP to all the authorized usb devices in our network.


Sounds like a winner.  We do have SEP, so that is great.
