Tokens may be replaced within any specified file by creating a script job with the command:
REM ReplaceTokens [file with token] [file to be created]
For example...
REM ReplaceTokens .\temp\sysprep.inf .\temp\%COMPNAME%.txt
Deployment Server actually reads this REM statement and takes action by creating a new file from the specified source (that contains any of the below tokens). In the example above, a sysprep.inf file is generated with the computer name and any tokens within the script are appropriately replaced with relevant data...
