Locking the TEM Client

Technote (troubleshooting)


How do I specify the duration of a LOCK operation?

Resolving the problem

Although the "lock until" functionality has been removed as of the TEM 6.0 Console, it is still possible to use the commands directly for the TEM Client.
action lock until "<expire date>" "<effective date>"

Note: The effective date must be later than the effective date of a previous lock action otherwise the client ignores it.

For example, to lock a computer for three days, use:
action lock until "{now + 3*days}" "{now}"
