There are two possible solutions:
- See TECH231057 for the ComputerName$ issue
- The behavior of users being created as a role and added to the Symantec Administrators, can be resolved by adding a custom setting that is not in
CoreSettings.config by default:
- Open the CoreSettings.config file located at
- Add the following based on the desired functionality described below, the current default if nothing is defined is "2"
<customSetting key="AutoCreateAccounts" type="local" value="0" />
0 == do not automatically create accounts
1 == automatically create accounts
2 == automatically create accounts and add local admin accounts into the Symantec Administrator's role
: This will be changed to a default of 0 in Hot Fix 3 for 7.6 and beyond.
