Why does the NIC driver not install during my scripted installation?
Before I give any details, I must sadly admit that when it comes to using msi commands and most of the features of KACE, I am totally clueless. I have searched and searched, for months, for answers to simple questions but don't seem to be getting anyhwere.
That said, I am having difficulty getting a scripted installation to install the driver for my ethernet card. In Postinstallation Tasks, after scripted install but before reboot, I have Drivers - x64 Driver Feed Workaround set to run. That didn't seem to work, so I also added (after the reboot) Drivers - Install Feed to Workstation. If I remember correctly, these tasks are included when KACE ships, so they weren't created after the fact.
Note: the corresponding drivers to this particular NIC have been uploaded to KACE. It's a Dell machine, so they could have been there already, but I'm trying to rule out anything simple like that.
Any ideas as to why this driver doesn't install? Again, I am very new to KACE, and frankly kind of new to systems administration in general, so I may be overlooking something that would seem obvious to others. Any help is appreciated.
You do not need to use the driver feed work around with scripted installs. That is for system images. When you uploaded your NIC driver did you recache the drivers afterwards?
Take a look at these sites. There's a ton of knowledge here.
