When any new driver/s are added to Deploy Anywhere/Preboot Driver Database Manager; being these special packages with dynamic data, it takes 8-10 hours to replicate these to existing Site Server under corresponding folder if if added single driver.

This creates following issues:

  1. During DA process of Imaging or SOI; user will not get correct drivers added to its computer working under a particular Site Server
  2. During Preboot creation; user will not find the appropriate drivers inside image which are getting created at Site Server before driver replication

So once the drives are added at NS; following is the method to achieve such driver replication immediately/on demand:

Go to SM Console > Settings > All Settings > Deployment and Migration > Drivers > [{Click on the package type for which drivers are added} (Say Drivers) > on Package Tab {Click Update Distribution Points} [Below is the image to present the same]

Now either wait for Site Servers SMAgent Configuration update duration which is default 1 hour or do Site Server SMAgent “Updates” and check for the corresponding driver folder with date wise shorting e.g. \\Site Server\Deployment\Task Handler\DriverDB

Hope this would be helpful.

Thanks,

Vaibhav
