DESCRIPTION

The Enable-WdsDriverPackage cmdlet enables a driver package in the Windows Deployment Services driver store. Specify a driver package by its unique name or ID.

While a driver package is enabled, clients that request the package can install it. Clients must have access to at least one driver group that contains the driver package in order to install it.

When you add a driver package to the Windows Deployment Services driver store by using the Import-WdsDriverPackage cmdlet, the driver package is enabled. Use the Disable-WdsDriverPackage cmdlet disable a driver package.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Enable a driver package by using a package ID

PS C:\> Enable-WdsDriverPackage -Id 32d78628-07fb-4e18-adc4-f0ecf8b41bbe

This command enables the driver package that has the specified ID.

Example 2: Enable a driver package by name

PS C:\>Enable-WdsDriverPackage -Name "Fabrikam Device Driver (x64)"

This command enables the driver package named Fabrikam Device Driver (x64). This name must be unique.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.
