im releaseadminlock
releases an administrative lock on the Windchill RV&S Server
im releaseadminlock [--[no]batch] [--cwd=directory] [--forceConfirm=[yes|no]] [(-F file|--selectionFile=file)] [-g|--gui][--user=name] [--hostname=server] [(-N|--no)] [--password=password] [--port=number] [--quiet] [--settingsUI=[gui|default]] [--status=[none|gui|default]] [(-?|--usage)] [(-Y|--yes)]
im releaseadminlock releases the administrative lock on the target Windchill RV&S Server. Locking is a mechanism for preventing changes on the target server while you are testing a workflow and document configuration on a Staging Server. The Admin Migration Wizard allows you to migrate your final workflow and document configuration from the test environment on the Staging Server to the work environment on your Production Server.
An administrative lock means that the administrative configuration of the server is no longer editable directly through the standard command set. Locking ensures that no other administrative changes can occur to the Production Server while the migration wizard is performing its update.
The administrator can manually lock either the Staging or Production Servers, or both, to prevent administrative changes from taking place. Locking both servers means that no one can make any administrative changes to the workflow and document system.
For example:
im releaseadminlock --server=abcFinancial --port=7001
releases the administrative lock on the abcFinancial server.
Releasing the lock on the Production Server means that the lock binding between the Staging Server and Production Server is lost and the two servers are no longer in sync. Further staging work will therefore require a new copy of the database from the Production Server. For more information, see the Windchill RV&S Help Center.
