disabling boot devices on poweredge servers?

The syscfg utility provides a mechanism to change the default boot
order, but I would like (for security reasons) to disable boot from USB
or CD-ROM (I can turn off PXE boot from the NICs). I don't want to use
a BIOS system password (as these are servers and need to be able to
reboot unattended) but will enable a BIOS setup password to lock in the
changes once they are set.
I can see how to disable boot devices in the F2 setup screen, but would
like a way to do this programmatically, without running Expect on a
DRAC/BMC serial console session.
Any suggestions? Is this possible using OMSA?
