SSM (System Software Manager) is a free solution provided from HP that streamlines the mass deployment of system software updates.

slide4

SSM reduces the complexity of system software management by delivering the following capabilities

1 Deploying system software updates (for drivers and BIOS, for

example) from a centralized file store to multiple client PCs –

simultaneously and automatically.

2 Deploying customer-created update packages.

3 Enforcing BIOS configurations and passwords.

4 Logging the changes made to each computer.

SSM Works By

1 Creating a file share name that is used to store the HP drivers.

{SSMFileStore}

2 Executing the automation command on your client.

{ssm.exe /accept }

3 Comparing installed drivers with the available drivers in your

SSMFileStore.

4 Automatically installing the driver updates on each machine.

No user intervention is required.
