In this section of the video series, we're talking about more you can do to customize the solution to your own needs.  This particular video is the first of three videos talking about Hardware Independent Imaging, or HII.  The three videos will discuss pretty much everything we know about HII, and cover the topics as follows:

  1. First (This video!) we discuss the basics of this process, what it is, what to do to achieve it, and basic troubleshooting.  Most of this video occurs in the console prior to actually deploying an image, and describes what is going on behind the scenes when you add drivers to Driver Manager, as well as covering the package replication that is necessary for Drivers DB to be available on each site server.
  2. In the second video, we'll dive into DeployAnywhere and what it takes to make this work.  We'll include a deep dive into the drivers, known issues, ways to test, reading the logs, etc.  A little more will be covered on Driver Manager as well as we go deeper into the process.
  3. Finally, we cover some aspects nearly outside our control.  We're going to cover what happens in MiniSetup during the driver installation to help you understand how you might either troubleshoot when you KNOW you have the right drivers, or how to expand on things.  We'll also discuss some alternate methods of distributing drivers, such as those we may not support with DA.

We hope you enjoy this video.  It's a great place to start with HII!
