We have been on 9.0 SP2 for about the past three months and now that I am starting to get caught up I thought I would start to implement new features that were availabile with SP2. The piece I am working on implementing is for pulling the HII drivers from a preferred server instead of the core. I went through and tried to find some whitepapers on HII drivers on preferred servers, but had no luck. If anyone knows a location of some I would love to get a copy.
So for the time being without any whitepapers I went ahead and attempted to set it up to my best of knowledge just knowing how preferred server usually work. The locations of the drivers are stored in the default location at \\**Core**\ldmain\landesk\files\drivers. I went ahead and made it a source and setup a share of LDMain on my preferred server. From there I replicated the drivers to the directory and the file stucture looks identical for the driver peice. I pointed the source directly at "\\**Core**\ldmain\landesk\files\drivers" so my first thought is maybe there are files a directory up or so that it may try to pull that I am not aware of for the driver pulling peice for HII. The final results I am running into is that it is not finding the files on the preferred server and it is pointing back at the core for the drivers and pulling from there.
I have a feeling it may either be the share's name to what it is looking for on the preferred server, or it is missing some other files and it sees that those files are not there so it jumps back to the core before it even starts to look for the drivers inside the folder.
