Question regarding Client Task to go from Observe to Disabled....

Jump to solution

In the ePO console, there is a Client Task to go from Observe to Disabled mode. This takes a system that is currently in Observe mode and places the "Status after reboot" to Disabled mode. This is convenient because you don't have to put a system in Enabled mode in order to set MAC to Disabled on reboot.

My question is, since this is a Client Task, is there a 'sadmin' command in the local CLI that would do the same thing (when you do 'sadmin disable', it says that it cannot go to Disabled mode from Observe mode)? I looked through the command list and didn't find a specific command that can do the same thing as the console. If there isn't such a command, then I presume it is an ePO only feature and in the local CLI, you cannot go from Observe to Disabled?

You can also try the Sadmin End-Observe -d command to achieve the objective

Thank you for posting your query

In order to put a machine into update mode from observe mode, please run the below command 

Sadmin EO -d

This will put the machine in update mode on next reboot

That worked! Running "sadmin eo -d" did the trick. That changed the server from "Observe" with "Observe after reboot" to "Observe" with "Disabled on reboot". That's exactly what I was looking for!

Kudos to you and Accepted as solution.

You can use the task name as "SC:End Observe Mode" , there is an option to select within this task which mode you want to enter.

 

Check the box for going into "disable mode".

As already suggested by @gnautiya you will need to create a client task to end observe mode and select the option to disable Solid core client 

Please refer to the screen shot End Observe Mode.PNG

Thank you. I am familiar with setting that task up as a Client Task on the ePO side. My question was specifically in regards to running a SADMIN command in the local CLI in order to go from observe to disabled. The suggestion to run the "sadmin eo -d" worked.
