Setting the Server Mode

PPM supports the following server modes:

  • 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 enables only users with Administrator access granted to 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.

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