Dell biz client driver cab os deployment using sccm dcip

  1. 1. Dell Client Operating System Deployment using Driver CAB
  2. 2. Agenda • Why Dell Cabs? • Introduction to driver cabs • Creating OS image • Importing *Driver Cab • Injecting Winpe drivers • Creating task sequence • OS Deployment *Driver cab is also referred as Dell Command | Deploy Driver Pack
  3. 3. Why Dell Cabs? • Administration of large dell enterprise requires consistent methods for managing the diverse network clients. • IT departments typically manage a heterogeneous mix of decentralized client hardware and various software applications. • It’s a pain to install os and required drivers/applications on large number of clients .
  4. 4. Solution • To cater the pain points of Dell Customers ,Dell is providing a solution to leverage the operating system deployment (OSD) capabilities using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr/SCCM 2012 )/KACE/MDT with the Dell Client System Deployment CABs (Dell Command | Deploy Driver Pack) to deploy a customized OS image on Dell client systems.
  5. 5. Introduction to Driver Cabs • Cab Consist of raw drivers and Manifest.xml • Manifest.xml carries the information regarding drivers packed in the cab Cab Structure • CABs are of three types:  System CABs :designed for deployment to a single model  Combo CABs: designed for deployment to multiple models  WinPE CABs : designed to provide required drivers for WinPE to boot a Dell machine • A driver Cab is released for an Operating System Family • A New Driver CAB is spun based on set of Drivers availability for list of devices, It might be new or either old. • Cabs are released on the cadence like monthly, once in two months , Quarterly
  6. 6. Line of Business Supported • Optiplex • Latitude • Mobile Precision • Desktop Precision • Tablets • XPS
  7. 7. Supported Os & Architecture Operating system : – Windows Vista – Windows XP – Windows 7 – Windows 8 – Windows 8.1 Architecture: – x32-bit – x64-bit
