Hopefully you can point me in the right direction with this one... Please note this is not a question about Driver Packages that would normally be deployed as part of an OSD Task Sequence.
Scenario: We are using SCCM (1511) to deploy a Windows 10 OS upgrade to existing Windows 7 clients.
The upgrade all works ok and I can deploy the cumulative update from SCCM during the upgrade. I also appreciate I could patch the WIM with this cumulative update (when I upgrade to 1602), but that's a job for another day.
I have a number of Dell and Lenovo laptops. Invariably there are a couple of drivers that need to be installed post upgrade.
When I connect to Windows Update on the internet, the drivers are downloaded and installed without issue.
What I am trying to do is download them from the 'net into SCCM so that 30,000 clients
Don't need to go to to the internet for driver updates and... Are ready to go straight after the upgrade.
I have configured the software update point component to download the metadata for all classifications and all products.
I have configured an automatic deployment rule like this: Properties / Software Updates / Product / Search Criteria / Windows 10 and later Drivers.
When I do a preview, there are no driver updates to display.
My questions are:
Is it possible to download the drivers that Windows Update finds and subsequently host and deploy them from SCCM?
If so, am I doing it correctly?
If not, how can this be dome without having all clients go to Windows Update for the driver updates?
