Resolution

UI and functionality of Driver Management page has been changed. Please refer to ITMS 8.5 RU4 Release Notes:

Enhanced driver management.

  • Deployment Solution lets you edit imported drivers in the Symantec Management Console, at Settings > Deployment > Driver Management. You can import drivers as a pack, change imported driver tags. New Advanced Settings let you configure the default driver import settings.
  • You can also add or remove operating systems that are applicable to an imported driver.
    You can view the information about the time when a driver has been modified in the DeployAnywhere database. You can view this data in the Driver Database Management dialog box, on the DeployAnywhere tab, in the Modified column.
  • You can use command-line switches for importing drivers with the Deployment Solution Resource Import Tool.
    For more information, refer to Adding drivers to the DeployAnywhere database

This dialog was used for management drivers for using on DeployAnyWhere and Preboot environment. Dialog is opening from Settings > Deployment > Driver Management and displays list of available (imported) drivers:
