Description

The Disable-CMDriver cmdlet disables a device driver in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. To enable the driver, use the Enable-CMDriver cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Disable a device driver

PS C:\> $Driver = Get-CMDriver -Name "Driver01"
PS C:\> Disable-CMDriver -InputObject $Driver

The first command gets the driver object named Driver01 and stores the object in the $Driver variable.

The second command disables the driver stored in $Driver.

Example 2: Disable a device driver by using the pipeline

PS C:\> Get-CMDriver -Name "Driver02" | Disable-CMDriver

This command gets the driver object named Driver02 and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Disable-CMDriver, which disables the driver object.
