The release of Workflow 7.5 revolutionizes the concept of community-based documentation by creating component wiki pages for every component included in Workflow. This new component wiki model makes structured, community-based content available at its point of use.

You can access these component pages in the articles section of the Endpoint Management Community. You can also access these component pages from within Workflow Designer that shipped with ServiceDesk 7.5. Once Workflow 7.5 is released, you can access the component pages from within the Workflow Designer.

As a member of the Workflow community, you can earn Symantec Connect points and help others in the Workflow community by adding your knowledge, use cases, and examples to the wiki pages for the components that you use

Symantec will continually add content to these pages. However, we encourage you to submit ideas, use cases, and suggestions to help develop the community based articles.

We hope...

As an innovation leader, Symantec has broken new ground again, this time in developer documentation. After an in-depth review of documentation for development frameworks similar to Workflow, we found that the best available documentation is community based. Unfortunately, community-based documentation tends to be both unstructured and difficult to find.  

For the upcoming release of Workflow 7.5, we have revolutionized the concept of community-based documentation by creating component wiki pages for every component included in Workflow. These wiki pages are available inside the Workflow Designer, where Workflow developers need to find it, as part of each component’s Online Help. This new component wiki model makes structured, community-based content available at its point of use.  

As a member of the Workflow community, you can earn Symantec Connect points by adding your knowledge, use cases, and examples to the wiki pages for the...

Following up from article at link below where we explained how to mount and un-mount boot.wim:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/ds-7x-mounting-bootwim-file-access-folder-structure-enable-checkaddremove-files-and-folders

In this post, we will go through the process of manually injecting x86 drivers for the network card Intel i217 i218 into boot.wim

1 - First of all we need to prepare the Driver's Folder by cleaning up all the unecessary drivers/files

To see how to pick the correct driver for a specific NIC, and how to do the clean-up please have a look at this article:

(..Under construction...)

 

The final product will look something like this:

When creating bootable USB or .ISO with Bootwiz.exe, Ghost32.exe is not included in the boot.wim file (WinPe4.0 file)

 

bootwix.exe is located here on the SMP:

\Program Files\Altiris\Deployment\BDC\bootwiz\BootWiz.exe

Please keep in mind that with a fresh install of DS 7.5 SP1 you need first to import the windows ADK for WinPE 4.0 by following wizard at:

settings(tab) ->deployment -> Create Preboot Configurations

 

1 - After importing and installing the WinPe 4.0 environment, please run bootwiz.exe and follow the wizard to create a bootable USB.

This is only a short guide to help you get started in compiling your own drivers or use my pre-compiled, the guide is written for some one who have prior linux and kernel compiling experience.

Required software:
A system that runs rhel server 6.4 i386 can be a vm on your local workstation.
Kernel sources and headers 2.6.32-358.el6 
gcc-4.3 the GNU C Compiler
make the tool that runs the compile script
wget a tool to download files from http servers
bzip2 a compression tool
build-essentials tools and libraries used to compile

Get the kernel config from you altiris server it's path should be something like c:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\bin\Deployment\BDC\bootwiz\Platforms\Linux\x86\Build\config.x86
copy the config.x86 file to your kernel source directory (mine is /usr/src/kernels/linux-2.6.32-358.el6)and rename it to .config and "make oldconfig" to solve any configuration problems.

Since Deployment Solution 7.5, computers rebooted to Automation are renamed to their serial numbers rather than "MiniNTxxxx".

To retrieve the computer serial number, while in automation, type on the command prompt:

"wmic bios get serialnumber"

Then lookup the computer on the console under Manage > Computers.

Instead of adding a Search custom criteria, that should help to quickly identify the target machine for troubleshooting purpose.
