What do you want to achieve?




Remember, the access philosophy for servers is different to PCs: Who ever has physical access to the hardware can do almost everything (e.g. take the disks out, disable security switches -e.g. passwordless ILO access on proliants - etc.); each server should be in a room with restricted access.



However, if you are concerned somebody could plug an USB device in - he has to have a root account an a lot of know-how to get data on it or from it  ...

Hope this helps!
