Close access to drivers task

Deployment Solution for Dell Servers

This task type lets you close the access to the drivers that are embedded on the Lifecycle Controller.

This task is used mainly for a scripted OS installation (SOI) and is a workaround for a known issue between Dell drivers and Microsoft processes. If you try to perform a SOI, the drivers' presence on the DRAC crashes the installation. As a workaround, you can open the drivers, copy them from their current location into a WinPE environment, and then close the drivers. If you now start the installation, the Microsoft processes cannot see those drivers and the installation completes successfully.

See Performing a scripted OS installation without PXE

You can access this task type from the Create New Job or Task page.
