Description

The New-CMDeviceVariable cmdlet creates a device variable for a device. Task sequence processing uses device variables.

Examples

Example 1: Create a device variable

PS C:\> New-CMDeviceVariable -DeviceName "gateway-server.contoso.com" -VariableName "ServerIPAddress" -VariableValue "192.168.1.1" -IsMask 0

This command creates a device variable for the device gateway-server.contoso.com. The variable is named ServerIPAddress and the value is set to 192.168.1.1. Setting the IsMask parameter to 0 ensures that the variable is displayed in the Configuration Manager console.
