Kace Patch Management for Intel NIC drivers

We are looking to upgrade our NIC drivers and in the past I have just used KACE scripting for this. Recently though I have been wanting to see if patch management could be used to update the drivers. Is it possible to update NIC drivers using patch management? Even when I subscribe to Intel it does not seem to download drivers. Is there a way I could have NIC drivers download into the patch catalog or does that not work that way? I am also curious if it is possible to do this with Java versions. It would be great to be able to automate that with KACE patch management.

The patch catalog contains OS and applications patches. It will not contain Intel NIC drivers.

If these are Dell supported device models. You can run the "Supported Dell Models" report to confirm and the Dell Updates catalog contains the required driver, you maybe able to use this method.   If not you will need to continue using your script method.
