About predefined tokens in Deployment Solution

Deployment Solution

In Deployment Solution, a system token is a type of variable that can be replaced with unique deployment-related data that are retrieved from the database. You can insert these variable tokens in scripts or answer files to extract information from the database. Each managed computer 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 is a member. Depending on the individual computer, there may not be a value stored in the database for every possible token. The names for the Deployment Solution system tokens are case sensitive and must have a percent sign at the beginning and end of the token name.

There are tokens that you can add through the Symantec Management Console and also through the unattended or answer configuration file.

You can access the tokens from either of the following menus of the console:

  • Settings > All Settings menu > Settings pane > Notification Server > Task Settings > Tokens

  • Settings > Deployment > Tokens

You can add or create a new token, edit the SQL query of an existing token, or delete a token that you have created. You are not recommended to modify an existing token name.
