I am seeking some directional oversight.
In trying to use GP to prevent access to removable USB storage but am not meeting with success. GPMC.MSC on my Windows 2008R2 domain controller does not provide me with the many options that I am reading about, such:
Two sections in Group Policy can help you secure your hardware: Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Removable Storage Access (see Figure 1),
and Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Device Installation | Device Installation Restriction (see Figure 2).
when I go into the edit of a specific policy.
I suspect that something is amiss within GP Management, a config setting, templates, who knows.
Can anyone send me some thoughts on getting the various options to show up under Administrative Templates?
Thanks and best wishes.
