Is there a profile or local configuration to block bootable Linux thumb drives on thin clients? Id like to only use IGEL OS and that’s it
What do you mean exactly? Disabling USB Boot in Bios would make sense to me but we can‘t deliver a profile for that.
That’s what I figured. I have a UD3 and I just want to run IGEL OS only. No ability to boot another OS. I may just need to disable USB ports. How is that disabled locally on a UD3?
I would start the device, go into Bios (Del Key after pressing Power button), Boot Options (can‘t check atm), disable USB Boot, F10 to save.
or use superglue 😉 SCNR
Here we go (no, not the superglue):
Funny enough, USB boot is disabled already. Hmm, how is it booting from USB then? Lol. Maybe it’s a bios bug?
Let me ask it another way: what happened that you wanted to disable USB Boot?
Someone plugged in a USB device and booted to a Linux OS using the UD3. USB Boot is disabled by default. So, I found it curious.
Seems like the UD3 didn’t have a password. So, case closed, lol
