  1. Open Deploy Anywhere Driver Database Management from the GSS 3.1 console.

  2. Select "Add" to add your driver to the DA database

  3. Browse to the driver files (.inf) that you would like to add. After selecting the file you must enter a "Friendly Name", select the driver type and then select the applicable OS. Select "OK" and exit out of Deploy Anywhere Driver Database Management.

  4. Create a new job, ours will be named "Deploy Job"

  5.  Create a Distribute Disk Image task


  6. * Select the image from the location images are saved under, by default this is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\Images".
    * Select "Selected Image was prepared using Sysprep" and make sure to accurately fill out the Sysprep settings.
    * Select "Use Deploy Anywhere hardware independent imaging" and then select finish.

    Deploy Anywhere has now been successfully configured and the job can be ran on a target client computer. This will install any matching critical drivers onto that machine before booting up into the production environment.
