SysPrep.Section.Key

  • 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.

For a full list of sections, keys, and accepted values, see the System Preparation Utility for Windows documentation.

Specifies the value of a custom variable, where Name is the name of any custom variable to be made available to the SCCM task sequence after the provisioned machine is registered with the SCCM collection. 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.

SCCM.Server.Name

Snapshot.Policy.AgeLimit

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.

Snapshot.Policy.Limit

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.

Snapshot.Policy.Disable

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.

software.http.proxyHost

Specifies the host name, or address, of the proxy server.

For software content properties to use the proxy server, you must use both software.http.proxyHost and software.http.proxyPort.

Note:

You can use the software proxy settings to define a content property type value for a software component. Content properties are URLs that are downloaded by the agent. The agent uses the variable as a file path to the locally downloaded file. However, you can use the software proxy settings to download through the proxy host instead of from the URL.

software.http.proxyPassword

Specifies the password for the user name with which to authenticate to the proxy server. Use in combination with software.http.proxyUser.

The software.http.proxyPassword setting is required if you use the software.http.proxyUser setting.

Note:

You can use the software proxy settings to define a content property type value for a software component. Content properties are URLs that are downloaded by the agent. The agent uses the variable as a file path to the locally downloaded file. However, you can use the software proxy settings to download through the proxy host instead of from the URL.

software.http.proxyPort

Specifies the port number of the proxy server.

For software content properties to use the proxy server, you must use both software.http.proxyHost and software.http.proxyPort. There is no default software.http.proxyPort value.

Note:

You can use the software proxy settings to define a content property type value for a software component. Content properties are URLs that are downloaded by the agent. The agent uses the variable as a file path to the locally downloaded file. However, you can use the software proxy settings to download through the proxy host instead of from the URL.

software.http.proxyUser

Specifies the user name with which to authenticate to the proxy server. Use in combination with software.http.proxyPassword.

The software.http.proxyUser setting is optional. The software.http.proxyPassword setting is required if you use the software.http.proxyUser setting.

Note:

You can use the software proxy settings to define a content property type value for a software component. Content properties are URLs that are downloaded by the agent. The agent uses the variable as a file path to the locally downloaded file. However, you can use the software proxy settings to download through the proxy host instead of from the URL.

software.http.noProxyList

Specifies a list of hosts, and optional ports, that cannot use the proxyHost. The original content property downloads directly from URLs that match the patterns in the list. The software.http.noProxyList setting is only applicable if the proxy server is configured. For example, for the following comma separated list:

"buildweb.eng.vmware.com,confluence.eng.vmware.com:443,*.eng.vmware.com:80"

The following statements apply:

  • Any URL whose HOST is "buildweb.eng.vmware.com" cannot use the proxy server.

  • Any URL whose HOST is "confluence.eng.vmware.com" and the whose PORT is 443 cannot use the proxy server.

  • Any URL whose HOST is anything under the "eng.vmware.com" namespace and whose PORT is 80 cannot use the proxy server.

Note:

You can use the software proxy settings to define a content property type value for a software component. Content properties are URLs that are downloaded by the agent. The agent uses the variable as a file path to the locally downloaded file. However, you can use the software proxy settings to download through the proxy host instead of from the URL.
