KACE Product Support Question


K2000 driver feed older than K1000 Dell Updates

03/14/2017 851 views
Is there a way to get the same version of drivers on K1000 to the K2000 Driver Feed?
Even when my driver Feed in K2000 is UP-TO-DATE, it seems to be 2 or 3 revision-level lower than K1000.

Thanks in advance...

These are two different sources of drivers.
The K1000 gets the drivers from the Dell Driver update packages which are built regulary and contain the updated drivers (and only the updated ones)
The K2000 get fed by the driver cabs for OS deployment you can find here: 
http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/2065.dell-command-deploy-driver-packs-for-enterprise-client-os-deployment

These are not regulary updated but contain _ALL_ drivers. If the version is outdated (the pack on the Dell-Community-Page is newer) you can open a ticket with support.

  • Thanks for the answer.
    My K2000 and Dell-Community has the same drivers version. However K1000 has newer version, Perhaps I had to configure a task for driver upgrade on the first K1000 check in,
    • yes, that the K1000 drivers are newer is normal since these packages are more often built.
      (and also contain firmware updates which the build driver bundles don't contain)
      Do a regular driver patching run to keep them up to date.
