Dell Command | Integration Suite for System Center Version 5.1 User’s Guide

Creating A Dell Client Driver Package

The Dell Command | Deploy Driver Package feature allows you to import drivers and create Dell client driver packages in two ways: import and package the drivers included in one locally-stored file at a time, or use the streamlined, multiple-cab file import option, Dell Command | Deploy Catalog.
NOTE: You must use an account that has administrator privileges in order to create a Dell Client Driver Package. User accounts without administrator privileges will encounter permission errors involving the SMS share and installation folders.
  1. Launch the Configuration Manager console.
  2. Click Software Library.
  3. Expand Overview > Operating Systems.
  4. Right-click Driver Packages and click Dell Command | System Driver Library Import.
    The System Driver Library Import Wizard opens.
  5. Select a driver library source:
    • Dell Update/Support site—Select either the Use current internet proxy settings or the Use custom proxy settings option. If you choose the custom option, also enter a proxy server URL or IP address and a proxy port number. If you are using proxy authentication, enter a username and, optionally, a password.

      The Dell Command | Deploy Driver Pack Catalog is downloaded from the Dell support site.


    • Local Driver Library—Click Browse and navigate to a locally-stored Dell Command | Deploy Driver Package.

  6. Click Next.
    The Select Driver Libraries screen opens, displaying the driver libraries contained in the selected cab file(s).
  7. Sort the driver libraries table by clicking any column header, and then use the filters to limit the number of driver libraries displayed in the table. Filter fields are:
    • Operating System
    • Architecture
    • Line of Business (LOB)
    • Release Date range
  8. Click Filter to apply the selected limits on the available driver libraries.
  9. Select one to five driver libraries, and then click Next.
    The Select Options screen opens.
  10. Select the target distribution points to which you want to distribute the driver package automatically once it is created.
  11. Under Specify a UNC destination path, click Browse and then navigate to a location at which to store the Dell driver packages. To replace your changes with the default UNC path, click Restore to default path.
    NOTE: For Microsoft Windows XP operating systems, the Storage Driver Package option in the Task Sequence Editor is enabled. Select the appropriate storage driver during Microsoft Windows XP system deployment to avoid a continuous reboot with the following error: 0x0000007B (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE). For more information on the appropriate storage driver selection, see the Dell TechCenter site at
  12. Click Next.
    The Summary screen is displayed.
  13. Click Finish.
    A progress bar displays the package creation and deployment status. Driver packages are created and stored under the Dell System CAB Driver Packages folder according to the operating system architecture selected.
    NOTE: Importing drivers may take a long time, especially if you are importing multiple driver packages.
  14. When the process has completed, click Close.
