Deploy Drivers With SCCM2012 (Only Windows 7, Windows 8 & 8.1 & 2008 R2 / 2012 R2)

How To deploy Drivers With SCCM2012 R2 

 

Hi , always wondered how to deploy a driver withouth SDKS and Easily? This is the post you wanted

this is valid for SystemCenter or GPO or MDT .. and other platforms 

 

Posible Scenario

– You need to deploy a new driver or update it in 100 computers , how i can do this silently ?

The solution 

First we gonna need is the folder with the native driver , and a reference machine with Windows OS Installed  . How i get it ? Easy.

All drivers since windows 7 kernels are stored at :  C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository , so first at all go to this folder on the reference machine 

Steps

1. Install manually the driver on the reference machine to “steal it” ( check the creation date of the folder now before we install the driver and order it  by last created folders )

Now we know that the last driver was created / installed on 04/08/2014 at 9:17 

2. We install the driver manually and WE WILL KNOW THAT THE NEXT DRIVERS /DRIVER ON THIS FOLDER WITH TODAYS DATE ARE THE WANTED ONES. 

3. Copy the new folders/folder  from “filerepository” into a separate folder 

4. Search the Pnputil.exe utility on your machine (the file normally is located  on c:\windows\system32) they exist as 64 bit versión I used the 32 bit one but maybe you will need the other utilty ( ) anyways chose the one that u need 

pnputil

5.Create a package on your SystemCenter with PNPutil.exe on it ( I recommend to test this before creating the package on a real machine )

6. Create batch script with the following command on the folder /package 

pnputil.exe -i -a dlcdcncm.inf

more info about pnp util here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff550423(v=VS.85).aspx

7. Create the Package on SCCM & the program pointing to the batch script

8. Deploy to users

 

& Enjoy !!! :D:D
