You might have to have a 9.6 agent installed on the model you're trying to assign drivers to? Maybe you do already, but just an idea.
Appreciate your response. To answer your question, yes, I have a 9.6 agent on the model I'm trying to assign drivers to.
I will also add that this happens for the other drivers I want to assign - display, usb controllers, audio, etc.
Do you have an inventory scan in the DB for the type of Lenovo PC running Win7 x64? If yes sometime the device ID has extra info at the end that is not listed in the drivers inf file so then it doesn't show the driver.
Try removing the &REV_0C from the device id and search again. If this works then you either need to modify the inf file or my preference if just assign the driver to the hardware.
Tried removing the &REV part (suggested by a friend of mine) and it still doesn't work. Tried it for other devices and still a no go. Any possible way that my inventory record for the Lenovo workstation is corrupt? How can I go about recreating it and see if I can try this again? I'm still amazed at why LANDesk decided to do HII this way - the old way was so much easier...didn't have to mess around with device ID's.
If you are like and have the drivers in different folders, another thing you can do is search for keywords as well. IE, for our drivers our folder hierarchy looks like this
If shortening the hardware ID doesn't work, you can always type in the name of the folder instead (uncheck the populate by ID). So I would just type in the model name and it will show me everything that's under that and i can manually assign the driver.
If you want to skip HII completely, you can use copydrivers, pnputil, and a powershell script to do the same thing for you.
That is exactly how I have my folder hierarchy. Let me give this a try and I will reply with results.
That appears to be displaying the results. Thanks. For instance, I am now trying to assign the Realtek HD Audio driver...thing is, it displays a ton of INF files. How do I know which one to use? Do I just assign the one that is associated to the Hardware ID? If that is the case, it is not listed but has several others listed.
If you enlarge the screen, you'll see it lists the path to where the inf's are located. If you have more than 1 in the proper folder, you can either pick one and see if that works or copy the hardware ID into google and that will usually tell you the inf that way.
if you want my script, let me know and I can email you the XML files to import into LD.. or you can always call or facebook me
