LDMS 2016 has the ability to 'lockdown' the HII drivers for a make/model/OS/Bit Level combination so that it will only ever use those in the future.
I understand your frustrations but it is well worth checking this out to see if it will stop the nightmares.

I too have been totally frustrated with the doings of HII. We even upgraded to a new server with a fresh LANDesk 9.6 and a brand new drivers folder with basically nothing in it (drivers for two models) and HII failed way too much. And forget about trying to sift through the ridiculous log files to find out WHY HII is failing. I've had it up to my neck in log files.
my suggestion is to use this handy little tool:
It's very easy to set up and has been working so far for me like a charm.
I've got to be honest, I'll probably check out the TII method, but I have had such good success using copydrivers I will most likely just stick with that. Works excellent!
Check out this video of new LDMS 2016: [Tech Brief On-Demand Webinar 2016] Overview of LANDESK Management Suite 2016 about the 47th or 48th minute shows the new logic AND if you have your repository set up you can set it to ONLY look in the part of the repository that you want like model.
