What are the tokens and variables used in Deployment Solution and automation?
An Altiris system token is a type of variable that can be replaced with unique data from the Deployment database. Each computer being managed can have its own unique value for each token. For example, the %COMPNAME% token stores the NetBios computer name while the %DOMAIN% token stores the Microsoft Domain or Workgroup a computer belongs to.
Depending on the individual computer, there may not be a value stored in the Deployment database for every possible token. The names for the Altiris system tokens are case sensitive and must have a percent sign at the beginning and end of the token name. The following table list the currently available system tokens:
These are variable tokens that can be inserted in scripts or answer files to extract information from the Deployment Database.
