Deployment Solution

Issue/Introduction

DeployAnywhere will have issues when unsigned drivers are added to the driver database. This can cause them to not be installed properly during driver installation after image deployment or Scripted OS Installs.

Missing drivers for devices in Device Manager on clients that have run DeployAnywhere after image deployment, and drivers are added for those devices in the Driver Management page in the DS console.

Cause

DPinst.exe is used to install non-critical drivers to the system during Sysprep. It will not install unsigned drivers unless the /lm switch is added to the dpinst command line.

Resolution

In DS 7.6 HF7, Added the switch /lm to the DPinst.exe command line when it runs during mini-setup to allow unsigned drivers to be installed.
