Generating a report RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been tasked to generate a report in SMS 2003 for all the clients having USB ports enabled. We have disabled the USB for all clients through GPO in AD by changing the registry value for USB Store(H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\usbstor and then changing the HEX value of Start from 3 to 4).

    Now as I understand first I have pickup an inventory for this by changing the client inventory setting in SMS. But I do not have idea what changes I should make to pickup this HEX value. Can any one guide me about this.

    After picking up the inventory, the report will be available under which category.

  • Hi,

    You will need to update your SMS_Def.mof file for it to read the registry value and report on this. A good tool to use is regkeytomof.exe which will help you generate the update required. This is easily downloaded from the internet.
