REMOTE DRIVER CAPTURE: (Making a custom driver pack from a remote workstation)

NOTE: Prior to running a Remote Driver Capture, the workstation you will be gather drivers from MUST have the following:

  • Windows Firewall must be turned off
  • UAC must be turned off
  • The workstation must be domain joined.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • From the smartImager console, choose Console | Driver Capture
  • From the +New Capture link, choose "Remote Capture"
  • Enter in a computer name or IP address in the "Computer" field
  • Enter in the domain credentials (domainusername) and password in their perspective fields.
  • Click the "Connect" button
  • Once smartImager connects to the remote system, a "Remote System Information" summary will appear.

  • Leave the "Driver Pack" filed set to the default value placed by smartImager

  • Leave the optional identifier field blank

    •  This should only be used if you have an existing driver pack for the same model and you are testing driver versions.

  • Click the "Start Capture" button.

  • You can monitor the progress of the driver import/capture from the Driver Capture page on your smartImager console.

  • When the Remote Capture has completed your driver pack import, add your new driver pack to your Build (Builds menu from the top menu items). 

    • IMPORTANT: If you do not add your driver pack to a Build, it will not be used during a deployment.

  • Publish your changes.

    • From the top menu on your smartImager console, choose Publish, then Driver Packs.
