Adding drivers to the DeployAnywhere database

The DeployAnywhere driver database helps make image deployment and scripted operating system installation tasks hardware-independent. DeployAnywhere focuses on the device drivers that are critical because the retargeted system has to be managed remotely. During a Windows scripted operating system installation, if any required driver is missing, it takes the missing drivers from the DeployAnywhere driver database.

See Adding drivers to a driver database.

DeployAnywhere supports only the Windows operating system.

DeployAnywhere supports the following critical driver types:

  • Mass storage device (MSD)

  • Network interface card (NIC)

The MSDs are critical because they allow the resident operating system to boot while network drivers ensure that the retargeted node is managed remotely.

DeployAnywhere supports the following non-critical driver types:

  • Graphics

  • Audio

  • Keyboard

  • Mouse

  • USB

  • CD-ROM

  • Printer

  • Bluetooth

  • Multimedia

  • Modem
