How to mass import drivers into the DriversDB
Release : 3.3
Component : Driver Manager
Need a method to import Drivers into DriversDB from the command line.
The base command is: DriversManger.exe /DDB=<path to DriversDB folder> /ADD=<path to driver pack>
Below is an example of locating, and importing the driver set
1) Locate the driver pack from the OEM manufacture and decompress the drivers to a directory. For example: D10Virto
2) From the command cd to: c:\Program Files (x86)\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\Ghost
3) Enter the command: Drivermanager.exe /DDB="c:\program files (x86)\Altiris\express\Deployment server\DriversDB" /ADD="c:\D10Virto"
Note: The above command assumes the DriversDB is at default path. If your install is different, change the path that matches to your environment.
4) As a result the command will create a driver folder in the DriversDB folder and adds the driver files and a drivermanifest.xml file. This will also update the drivermanifest.xml file in the root of DriversDB folder.
