Does anybody have any experience with using this plugin for SCCM? I cannot find any documentation on its use.
I have it installed and it allows you to import driver packs, import winpe packs and gives you Task Sequence templates but the problem i am having is that every import i try to do just fails. It could import a hundred drivers and then just suddenly bug out on one driver and the whole process fails.
Does anyone have it working? Had similar problems? Documentation?

The CIK SoftPaq (sp64311.exe) contains the file name "HP CIK for Configuration Manager 2012 User Guide.pdf"
Although the first line in the document also refers to it as a technical white paper, the document is not currently present on the manageability portal as an independent download.
I am not certain where the document is placed upon installation of the SoftPaq but you should be able to perform a file search and find it after the SoftPaq is installed.
Client management tools can be found at http://www.hp.com/go/clientmanagement
Look in the Resources menu for items such as the HP CMS Download Library, HP CMS Whitepapers or HP Driver Packs

That is helpful Richard. That doc contains lots of useful information but unfortunately i still have trouble importing driver packs and the error messages are very generic.
For example, i get this error message when trying to create the HP Boot Image from the WinPE 4.0 pack:
2014/04/09 11:45:42.350 :: Adding \\angpmgt01\HPCIK\Drivers\sp64529\hp_dt_nb_wks_1.01\x64_winpe\driver - network\intel\WIN81\E1D64x64.INF to SCCM.

2014/04/09 11:45:50.989 :: Internal create WinPE boot image(s) exception:

I will attach both log files here for review.
Is this forum a suitable place to seek assistance with this matter?

So I have found a few things.
WE know of an situation that can cause drivers to fail to be pulled into the boot.wim. This has to do with the way the ADK performes the WHQL check.
This forum shows the exact issue you are seeing and it seems that dropping back to an older version of the ADK may fix the issue.
Please have a look at that.
In general I am noticing that Server/SCCM/ADK must fit together. So Server 2012 SCCM 2012SP1 may need ADK8.0 which is based on Win8 which is what Server 2012 is based on. This will allow Win8.0 WHQL drivers to import correctly into WinPE4(Win8.0)
Please try matching the Server/SCCM/ADK so they are on the same base OS.

I did have some problems with drivers inside SCCM and it was all related to permissions on the driver share.
The Configuration Manager 2012 System account must have Read and Write permissions to the specified driver package source folder.Might be worth a try.
