Install driver packages to the appliance

Install driver packages to the appliance

You can select specific driver packages to download and install from the Driver Feed to make them available to the appliance for scripted installation and system image deployments.

1.
On the left navigation bar, click Library to expand the section, then click Driver Feed.
The drivers are installed in the drivers_postinstall share directory.
3.
Select Choose Action > Download.
When the process completes, the Status column displays Installed into driver share. You can view the installed drivers on the Drivers page.
4.
On the left navigation bar, click Library to expand the section, then click Drivers to display the Drivers page.

Disable Dell Driver Feed

Disable Dell Driver Feed

Disabling the Dell Driver Feed prevents the feed from overriding newly added drivers. You can disable the Dell Driver Feed for images captured from a appliance and for images captured from a Remote Site Appliance (RSA).

You can manually add and remove drivers. For example, you can add Dell specific-device drivers that do not get updated from the Dell Driver Feed or non-Dell device drivers to the drivers_postinstall directory. You can add and remove network and storage drivers to the drivers directory.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Library to expand the section, then click Dell Driver Feed.
2.
Select Choose Action > Manage Dell Driver Feed Settings to display the Dell Driver Feed Settings page.
3.
Clear the Enable Dell Driver Feed check box.
4.
Click Save.

Create folders to add device-specific drivers

Create folders to add device-specific drivers

When adding drivers manually, you can create folders to organize the device-specific drivers by assigning the manufacturer name to a folder, and adding subfolders under the manufacturer name to organize further.

View the appliance Driver Compatibility Report, which lists the drivers that the device requires compared to the drivers available on the Source Media.

1.
Access the drivers_postintall share directory of your appliance from the UNC path \\<appliance>\drivers_postinstall where <appliance> is either the IP address or the DNS name of the appliance.
The path to the drivers, including the driver name, cannot exceed 255 characters, and the directories and driver names do not support special characters. You can run the driver_feed_discovery_tool.vbs script on the device to get the device model and manufacturer name. The script is located in the drivers_postinstall\feeds_tools directory.

Generate appliance package to import large driver files

Generate appliance package to import large driver files

You can generate a package for files that you download from a manufacturer's website or from a different source and for files that are larger than 1.5 GB. The appliance restore share directory is the repository for storing packages and files that you can import to the appliance.

The Package Management Export feature creates a .pkg file. The .pkg file contains the drivers and an .xml file with the same name as the .pkg file. The .xml file contains metadata about the drivers. A separate package is created for each selected driver package.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Settings to expand the section, then click Package Management to display the Package Management page.
2.
Click Export SDA Packages to display the Export List page.
4.
Select Choose Action > Export Selected.

If you start an export of a package while an export process is in progress, the package waits in the queue. The packaging process can take a few minutes to several hours to complete, depending on the size and number of items in the package. The Status column indicates when each export completes.
