Can I use DeX mode if certain USB functionalities are disabled with Knox Configure?

Depending on the DeX features your deployment requires, certain USB classes cannot be disabled. For example, USB host storage must be enabled to use DeX mode. However, you can use DeX mode if other USB capabilities like MTP are disabled.

Below are a few common situations you may encounter:

Use ONLY display port via DeX display port:

  • Enable USB host storage
  • Do not disable any USB peripherals

Use ONLY USB keyboard and mouse via DeX USB port

  • Enable USB host storage
  • Do not disable Human interface device

Use ONLY Ethernet via DeX ethernet port

  • Enable USB host storage
  • Do not disable Vendor specific, CDC data, Communications

For more about USB restrictions, see USB device restrictions in the Knox Configure admin guide.
