Modifying token object properties

By default, token objects are stored in the <Domain> | Defender | Tokens container.
General tab  Provides the token type and token activation code expiry date. You can also use this tab to program, reset, test, and recover the token.
Details tab  Displays information about the token.
Assigned Users  Provides a list of users to whom the token is assigned. You can use this tab to assign or remove the token from users.
When you are finished, click OK to apply your changes.

Token Date  For objects representing hardware tokens, this option displays the manufacture date of the token. By using this date, you can calculate the approximate expiry date of the token’s battery.

Program  Click this button to program the token.
Reset  Click this button to synchronize the token with the Defender Security Server.

Recover  Click this button to remotely recover the token after it has reached its preset use limit or been invalidated because the user exceeded the preset number of bad PIN attempts. The Recover button also allows you to reset a passphrase for the token. These values are defined in the token profile assigned to the user.
After you click this button, use the Unlock Challenge text box to type the challenge value displayed on the token, and then click the Get Response button. Enter the displayed response into the token to complete the recover procedure.
