Description

The Enable-CMDriver cmdlet enables a device driver in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager.

Examples

Example 1: Enable a driver by using the pipeline

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

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

Example 2: Enable a device driver that is specified by its name

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

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

The second command enables the driver stored in $Driver.
