  • SysPrep.GuiUnattended.AdminPassword

  • SysPrep.GuiUnattended.EncryptedAdminPassword

  • SysPrep.GuiUnattended.TimeZone

Specifies information to be added to the SysPrep answer file on machines during the WinPE stage of provisioning. Information that already exists in the SysPrep answer file is overwritten by these custom properties. Section represents the name of the section of the SysPrep answer file, for example GuiUnattended or UserData. Key represents a key name in the section. For example, to set the time zone of a provisioned machine to West Pacific Standard Time, define the custom property GuiUnattended.UserData.TimeZone and set the value to 275.

The value is determined by your choice of custom variable. If your integration requires it, you can use SCCM.RemoveCustomVariablePrefix to remove the SCCM.CustomVariable. prefix from your custom variable.

Sets the age limit, in days, for snapshots that can be applied to machines. This property applies to vSphere provisioning.

When a snapshot exceeds the age limit, the Apply option is no longer available.

When the snapshot age limit is reached, the snapshot remains but you can no longer revert to it. You can delete the snapshot using the vSphere client.


Sets the number of snapshots allowed per machine. The default setting is one snapshot per machine. This property applies to vSphere provisioning. When set to 0, the blueprint option to create a snapshot is hidden for all users except for support and manager roles.

Snapshots are shown in a hierarchical structure.

  • Depth – Maximum is 31.

  • Width – There is no limit.


When set to true, the ability to create a snapshot is disabled for all vRealize Automation user roles and the snapshot option is hidden from the Items tab.
