Hi Chuck, Sorry if the steps were not clear enough for you but I assure you that configuring KMS on a Windows 2008 R2 server is very much possible by following my. In SCCM 2. 01. 2, there is now only one real method of importing good drivers, which is importing the drivers into the database. Update As noted in the comments, Achim has posted a way to apply drivers without importing them into the database in SCCM 2. My opinion is that the need to use the no import method has diminished a little over the years. Driver quality in general has improved and Windows 7 and newer OSs are a bit more forgiving than XP. Which drivers One of the biggest mistakes I see is clients who get a makemodel in and proceed to go the manufacturer website and grab every driver this will leave you with a bloated mess of a driver database. Often the manufacturer drivers are out of date, full of bloat and just generally crap. I suggest Identify drivers that are common for many makes and models, such as. Intel Nic prosetIntel chipset. Intel integrated gfx primarily for laptopsIntel Sol and HECIIntel mass storage RSTBroadcom network. Nvidia and ATI gfx. Grab all these drivers from the original manufacturer website i. Intel, Broadcom, etcCreate a driver package for these drivers and use auto apply for the time being. Responses to How To Make An Unattend. Sysprep File Mark Says January 20th, 2011 at 1045 am.

Msreport Guillaume MATHIEU La connaissance saccrot quand on la partage http 1 Windows 2012 Server. Run your SOE build on the makemodel of hardware open device manager, see whats missing. Go to the manufacturer website and grab what is missing but again, if you can find the original reference driver from the source, get that instead. In addition, this handy tool https gallery. Config. Mgr Driver Injector aae. SCCM. Handle it with a little bit of care, as just importing all drivers can again lead to driver bloat and different versions of things such as chipset or network drivers. Making sure you have the correct drivers. Ok, so you have a Windows 7 or Windows 8 Im going to assume that no one is still using XP and that anyone that went to vista has been laughed out of the business. Hardware ID or PNP ID this is handy when devices come up with un helpful descriptions as so many of them doDownload the driver, and unpackextract so you have the drivers in the infsyscat format the good format. Note this is another time where you may find drivers from the original manufacturer website are better than the HPDellLenovofujitsu etc. In device manager, try and update the driver by pointing in to the specific directory the driver is unpacked too. If it works woohoo. If it doesnt work youve got the wrong driver, go back and try a different driver. On rare occasions, the driver may be correct, but will only install when implemented via setupinstall. PNPID and somehow Ive never bothered to try and work out how the setup process gets around this editing the inf with the correct PNPID can get around this, but you have to be sure that its the right driver. Probably not such a good idea to try this is you are relatively new to this process and as I said, it is rare. Driver import and package process. The most common mistake I see here is people that copy their drivers into a location such as C Temp import them, then delete them. This causes all types of hassles dont do it. SCCM wants the original source files to still be there. Under your package source, create a directory called DRVSource or similar2 Copy all your original drivers into a folder structure under this directory such as. DRVSource. DRVSourceCommonIntel. Chipset. DRVSourceCommonIntel. Nic. DRVSourceCommonBroadcom. Nic. DRVSourceDell. Opti. Plex. 7. 45Win. Gfx. DRVSourceDell. Opti. Plex. 7. 45Win. Audio. DRVSourceHPN7. Win. 8. x. 64Gfx. Import your drivers into the database, one modelOS combo at a time creating a category for them as part of the process. Import everything from DRVSourceDell. Opti. Plex. 7. 45Win. Dell. Optiplex. 7. Win. 7. x. 644 Create the package in your package source location, using your naming convention e. DRV. Dell. Optiplex. Win. 7. x. 64. 5 Repeat until you have all the drivers you want imported. Add packages to DP and distribute. This is where it diverges a little. If you have a small number of makes and models. Create an apply driver package after the existing auto apply drivers step which you can now disable or deleteSelect the appropriate driver package. Get the model name from the desired makemodel machine by using WMIC CSProduct Get Name In the options tab, enter a task sequence variable of model equals lt model name. In the case of some models, there are long rambling characters in the model string. E. g. HP Elitebook 5. WRERTYG6. 7In this case, use a WMI query instead such as Select from Win. HP Elitebook 5. 90Repeat for each of your models. For places that do have large numbers of makes and models the most important thing is to avoid driver bloat it will make your driver database difficult to manage. Try and use reference drivers from the real source manufacturer e. Intel where possible this will give you better coverage of more makesmodels with less drivers. This was fantastically illustrated today for me at a client who uses Lenovo desktops, below is a screenshot of the ahem enterprise management driver download for SCCM for Think. Centre 9. 2s1. 5. GB 1. 5. GB of drivers. Drivers, actually rerquired for a Thinkcentre 9. Intel chipset, gfx, network, mass storage, usb 3, mei, sol. This shows the waste and bloat you will have if you use the shitty driver packs from lenovodellhp. SCCM in their life Do not, ever, dump the entire set of drivers from the manufacturers website do an install and only grab the ones that are missing. Try to stick with more mainstream hardware if possible. I dont love any of the major OEMs, they all have their faults. Even for the bigger manufacturers, stick to machines that are intended for corporate environmentsBad driver package processBad Drivers are just another application which must installed, similar to acrobat 2. Standard packaging processes should be followed for these applications. Adding boot image drivers. Boot image drivers are injected in Windows PE and provide local disk and network access which are required to initiate a build process. SCCM 2. 00. 7 SP2 installations use Windows PE 3. Based on Windows 7SCCM 2. RTMSP1 installations use Windows PE 4. Based on Windows 8SCCM 2. R2 installations use Windows PE 5. Based on Windows 8. Identify the network and mass storage driver required for your version of Windows PE and your hardware modela Remember, this is not the same driver as the OS you are installing, its the driver required for the version of windows PE your using in your boot image. Import the driver into the SCCM driver database, with a category of Windows PE boot drivers3 Go into the properties of the appropriate boot image, go to the Windows PE tab and add the appropriate drivers. Microsoft Key Management Services KMS Help Support. What is KMS Microsoft Key Management Services KMS provides a way to automatically activate volume license editions of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. It is designed to allow Volume Licensing customers to automate the activation process in a way that is transparent to end users. Volume Activation applies to systems that are covered under a Volume Licensing program and is used strictly as a tool for activation and not tied to license invoicing or billing. Supported Products. KMS activation is available for the following Microsoft products that are distributed by Software Acquisitions Office. Windows 7 Enterprise EditionWindows 8 8. Enterprise EditionsWindows 1. Education and Enterprise EditionsWindows Server 2. R2 Enterprise EditionsWindows Server 2. Enterprise EditionMicrosoft Office 2. How KMS Works. When a supported version of Windows or Microsoft Office is installed, the computer will attempt to discover the KMS Server on the network. This is accomplished by checking for a SRV record in the DNS Zone of the computer. If that record is present, the computer will contact the KMS server and automatically activate the license. KMS activations are valid for 1. The computer will periodically check in with the KMS server to renew the computers activation. Please note the initial KMS activation process requires network connectivity to the campus network, either through a wired, wireless, or VPN connection. Computers must also connect to the campus network at least once every 1. KMS is not a suitable activation method for computers that do not have network access or do not connect to the campus network at least once every 1. In these cases, there is an alternate activation method, Multiple Activation Key MAK. Serial Number For Vuescan 9 X64 there.

Most networks on campus, including wireless networks will allow KMS if it is available, and your software should automatically activate. No action should be required. However you can check to see if the auto discovery is allowed on your network by doing the following Note For automatic discovery to work, the KMS SRV record must be present in the DNS zone of the computer. For example, a computer with the DNS address computername. A computer with the DNS address computername. To determine if the required record is present in a domain, run the following command using command prompt for windows nslookup typesrv vlmcs. Note Replace the lt domain with your domain such as ad. If the correct record is present, you should see something like this vlmcs. SRV service location priority 0 weight 1. If this test fails, you will need to have the following DNS record added to the DNS zone vlmcs. IN SRV 0 1. 00 1. From Networks That Do Not Allow KMS Automatic Discovery.

However, you can still activate via KMS from off campus by connecting to UNC Network with our Virtual Private Network VPN service. When you connect to UNC via VPN, your computer is on the UNC network, and has full access to services that are restricted to campus. This includes the KMS activation server. For instructions on how to configure the Virtual Private Network VPN service, please see our VPN Installations and Clients document. Once you have connected to the VPN server, your software should activate automatically. The activation will be good for 1. If 1. 80 days pass without reconnecting to the UNC network, your software will enter its 3. You can take that as a prompt to connect to the VPN again. Please note that it can take up to two hours for automated activation to take effect. If you need to activate sooner, you may follow the manual KMS activation procedure above while connected to the VPN.
