Upgrade now to the UIU Plug-ins 2.0
Automated driver management for OS deployments with the UIU just got even better!

Big Bang is proud to announce the UIU Plug-ins 2.0. The UIU Plug-ins 2.0 is an upgrade to the existing 1.x versions of the UIU plug-ins for SCCM and MDT and is now available to all UIU customers.

If you are currently using one or both of the UIU plug-ins for SCCM or MDT, please follow the appropriate UIU User Guides to download and install the UIU Plug-ins 2.0. The UIU Plug-ins 2.0 is designed to be installed alongside your 1.x implementation for a seamless upgrade experience.

Once you have installed and verified that your 2.0 implementation is complete, you're ready to remove 1.x from your environment:

  1. Ensure that the UIU Machine Configuration Step has been removed from all Task Sequences. Task Sequences that still have the UIU Machine Configuration Step after the uninstall of 1.x will be unrecoverable without assistance of UIU Support. (Note: The 2.0 plug-ins will utilize the UIU Deployment Configuration Step.)

  2. Note that the 1.x uninstallation process will mandatorily remove files in the original source location! In order to preserve the existing UIU Repository, move the contents of the existing UIU Repository source location to a new UIU Repository source location to be used with the UIU Plug-ins 2.0. The UIU Repository source location is the root folder that contains the x86, AMD64, and Repository folders (some implementations may also contain SQL CE 4.0 and/or Components folders). Leave the empty source location folder there.

  3. Modify the existing UIU Package in SCCM to use this new source location for use with UIU Plug-ins 2.0.

  4. Uninstall the UIU 1.x from Programs and Features in the Control Panel. When presented with the option to remove package(s), uncheck the box(es) to avoid removing the package(s)—this will allow for the removal of the UIU program files and the now-empty source location folder while preserving the package(s) in SCCM.
