Multiple SystemIDs for the Same Model Using CMSL

Hello,

I'm new to the CSML and and I'm working on some automation of our driver packaging process with it.  I've noticed that for some models, there are multiple SystemIDs that represent the same model.  What is the best way to tell which version of this model we have in our environment?  Are the driver packs the same for both IDs?  

 

Thank you!

Re: Multiple SystemIDs for the Same Model Using CMSL

The marketing name of the computer and/or chassis is what typically tells you what version of the model you have. For example, a desktop may have a different chassis like small form factor, microtower, etc. A laptop could have different size displays (13", 14", etc.) but could share the same System ID.

Driver packs are the same for each model. They contain all components that are required for the different System IDs listed in the CVA file.

Thank you for the information.  I may need to specify a bit.  An example of one of these devices is the following: HP EliteBook 1040 G4 Notebook PC - 8417 HP EliteBook 1040 G4 Notebook PC - 82DE

The name is identical for both, however this model has two IDs associated with it.  

Thank you!

Hi Micah. That model had 2 different types of system boards used, hence the 2 different System IDs.
