Variables in Spark.properties

Are there any variables that can be used in spark.properties so that I can edit the file, and push it out to all domain users. What I want to do is make all clients use the computer name as the resource so that when a user messages me with a problem, I can find their computer name easily for remote assistance. Most of my users are not bright enough to follow instructions to get their computers name. lol

I am just wondering if there is a list of variables that can be used. I’m doubting it, but it would be nice to be able to put something like:
resource=%HOSTNAME%

add the following…this should automaticly pull the hostname as a resource for spark.
useHostnameAsResource=true

I know you sent this solution a few months ago, but I just got around to trying it.

It works like a champ.

Do you have a list of other variable that Spark accepts in it’s config file?

Not really sure what I would be looking for, just for some other options to look at.

The setting speedy suggested is the same as checking the checkbox in Advanced settings on Login screen. All settings in config file are represented in GUI, so you can learn them by just checking various settings and changing the values and then looking at config file. Also, most are prepopulated with some default value in the starting config file. There are no list other than digging through the source code.
