The script, located in the <PPM_Home>/bin directory, sets the server mode in case you want exclusive access to a running server.

The following are valid server mode values:

  • Normal. In normal mode, all enabled users can log on, and all services are available, subject to restrictions set in server.conf parameters.

  • Restricted. In restricted mode, the server lets users with Administrator access grant log on. The server cannot run scheduled executions, notifications, or the concurrent request manager while in this mode.

    Before you can install an Deployment Management Extension, you must set the server to restricted mode.

  • Disabled. Disabled mode prevents server startup. A server enters disabled mode only after a PPM upgrade exits before the upgrade is completed.

To set the server mode using the script:

  1. On the desktop, select Start > Run.

    The Run dialog box opens.

  2. In the Open field, type:

    sh ./ <Mode_Value>
