Recache Drivers and KBE Building
07/31/2015 3307 views
I am trying to wrap my head around some things having to do with drivers.
1) What exactly does recaching do? Does it just update the list of drivers on the Drivers tab of the KACE web UI?
2) When building KBEs, how should I manage drivers if I want to build both PE3 and PE5 KBEs? For example, Dell says to delete old drivers from the Drivers share, but if I were to do that after making a PE3 KBE (in order to make a PE5 KBE), the driver list will contain drivers that no longer exist in the share.
3) Are the Dell Driver Packs incremental, or do they include all drivers from previous releases? I would assume (since Dell says to delete the old drivers before building a new KBE) that the driver packs contain all drivers, but given they are so small I find this hard to believe.

The main thing objective of recaching the drivers is for the K2 to parse those directories and capture the information into the "drivers" list page, you can view kbe drivers. Steve is correct in that you don't really have to recache for drivers_postinstall, however, it is necessary for the drivers directory.
