Adding device drivers

To add extra device drivers, which are required for some options on the target server, into deployment media, you must first import them into the Altiris Deployment Server.


  1. Start the Toolkit Configuration Utility, tkconfig.exe. The default location is C:\Program Files\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\sgdeploy\sgtklinux\tkconfig\tkconfig.exe.
  2. Select Add Operating System Device Drivers from the task list. The wizard starts.
  3. Select the machine type and OS type that you want to deploy, then click Next.
  4. Download the device driver package from the link to a local path.
    • If the wizard displays the message Don't need extra driver packages for the Machine Type and OS type, go to step 7.
    • If the deployment scenario needs extra device drivers, the driver package download link is shown on the wizard. There are two types of device drivers: optional and mandatory. You can ignore the optional device drivers and go to step 7. You must, however, import the mandatory drivers.
  5. Select the location of the package.
  6. Click Next to import required device drivers to the Altiris Deployment Server.
  7. If desired, repeat the above steps to import extra device drivers for other deployment scenarios.
  8. Click Finish to exit the wizard.
