List Task Sequence Variables and Values Script

For years I have been using the following script from myITforum to list Task Sequence Environment Variables and Values

Set oTSEnv = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment")
For Each oVar In oTSEnv.GetVariables
WScript.Echo oVar & "=" & oTSEnv(oVar)
Next

Because there are so many variables, the only useful way to use the script is to pipe the output into a file, then open that file and search for the variable and its value.

So I have created the created the script below that can do the following:

  • List both the System and Task Sequence variables
  • If you provide no command line option, all system environment variables and task sequence variables are listed.
    cscript ts_var.vbs
  • If you provide the first letter, all system environment variables and task sequence variables starting with that letter are listed
    cscript ts_var.vbs P
  • If you write the first letters of a variable only those environment variables and task sequence variables matching these letters are listed.
    cscript ts_var.vbs Processor

Copy the below script into a file and save it as TS_var.vbs, then store the file into a location where you can access it while running an MDT or SCCM Task Sequence such as the <DeploymentShare>\Scripts folder.

 

On error resume next

Set wshShell = CreateObject( "WScript.Shell")

Set env = wshShell.Environment("System")

Set env1 = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment")

If Err Then

       wscript.echo "TS Environment not availble"

       wscript.echo "The script can only be used while the Task Sequence components are loaded"

       wscript.quit()

End if

 

If Wscript.Arguments.Count = 0 Then

              wscript.echo "No first letter(s) of variable provided so showing all"

 

              wscript.echo "list all environment variables"

              For Each strItem In env

                     WScript.Echo strItem

              Next

 

              wscript.echo "list all TS variables"

              For each v in env1.GetVariables

                     WScript.Echo v & " = " & env1(v)

              Next

 

 Else

     If Wscript.Arguments.Count > 0 Then

        VarLetter=WScript.Arguments.Item(0)

       If Len(Varletter) = 1 Then

 

              wscript.echo "list all environment variables starting with: " & Varletter

              For Each strItem In env

              If Ucase(Left(strItem,1)) = Ucase(Varletter) Then

                     WScript.Echo strItem

              End if

              Next

 

              wscript.echo "list all TS variables starting with: " & Varletter

 

              For each v in env1.GetVariables

              If Ucase(Left(v,1)) = Ucase(Varletter) Then

                     WScript.Echo v & " = " & env1(v)

              End if

              Next

 

       Else

 

              wscript.echo "list variable: " &Varletter

              varlen=Len(Varletter)

              For Each strItem In env

                     If Ucase(Left(strItem,varlen)) = Ucase(Varletter) Then

                           WScript.Echo strItem

                     End if

              Next

 

              wscript.echo "list TS variable: " &Varletter

              varlen=Len(Varletter)

              For each v in env1.GetVariables

                     If Ucase(Left(v,varlen)) = Ucase(Varletter) Then

                           WScript.Echo v & " = " & env1(v)

                     End if

              Next

       End if

   End If

 End If
