Did yout try to use the http share instead of UNC share to specify the drviers location when you reply your sources?
tenletters, did you get a working solution?
The Batch file that I’m using and works looks a little like this….
IPCONFIG.EXE | find /I "192.168.1."
IF NOT "%ERRORLEVEL%"=="1" GOTO SITE1
:Subnet2 IPCONFIG.EXE | find /I "192.168.2."
IF NOT "%ERRORLEVEL%"=="1" GOTO SITE2
:Subnet3 IPCONFIG.EXE | find /I "192.168.3."
IF NOT "%ERRORLEVEL%"=="1" GOTO SITE3
:SITE1 SET SERVER=\\SERVER1
:SITE2 SET SERVER=\\SERVER2
:SITE3 SET SERVER=\\SERVER3
:HII net use w: %server%\HIIDrivers$ password /user:domain\username
Start /wait x:\ldclient\hiiclient.exe /AutoDetect /ostype="Windows7" /uncpath=%SERVER%\hiidrivers$
• a share on preferred servers call hiidrivers$, I'm using Robocopy to replicate from the core on a schedule.
• The account used to map the driver has permissions to hiidrivers$, HIIClient.exe needs to have it connection authenticated or you will end up with a bunch of empty folders in c:\windows\LDDriverStore.
• hiiclient.exe has been moved to x:\ldclient\hiiclient.exe
Took me much banging of head and time to get to a working solution, and I probably wouldn't have got there without snippets of information and testing from Jack Rotherham and billyc. It's not pretty, but it works
Is there a solution for HII from preferred servers ?
I can't use a batch for that, we have a lots of ip ranges
See this discussion here: http://forum.landesk.com/support/thread/6479?tstart=-78
Prefmap.exe will allow the provisioning process to map to the most appropriate preferred server and pull down the necessary files. The documentation included in Jans zip is very comprehensive and should provide you with enough information to achieve your goal.
While this might not help you immediately, there were problems with HII and preferred servers in LDMS 9 SP2. We fixed those issue in SP3 and now the download speed has been improved greately and preferred servers work for HTTP and UNC. You can find more information about this here:
Edit: Having problems with the link. The document number is: 24084

I was actually in your Advanced Provisioning session at the conference heard this great news directly from you.
I am currently pilot using SP3 and rebuilding my HII driver repository. I will be switching to SP3 within the next month to month and a half. Can't wait. So far SP3 has done great and the speed difference with the injection process for both XP and 7 is great in general (not even accounting for the fact that the drivers are coming from a LAN source).
