Description

Warning

Configuration Manager cmdlets automatically lock and unlock objects. Use of this cmdlet may interfere with the functionality of other cmdlets.

The Unlock-CMObject cmdlet releases the SEDO lock on one or more objects. Configuration Manager SEDO (Serialized Editing of Distributed Objects) is a mechanism to assign locks to globally replicated objects. If a user wants to edit and save an object, they have to get a lock from the site. The site assigns a lock to the user for that object, on their computer, and in the site. While the user has the lock, no one else can edit the object.

For more information, see Configuration Manager SEDO.

Note

Run Configuration Manager cmdlets from the Configuration Manager site drive, for example PS XYZ:\>. For more information, see getting started.

Examples

Example 1: Unlock a driver package

The first command gets the driver package with the ID CM100042, and stores it in the $CIObj variable. The second command releases the lock it. The third command shows the details of the lock, which is now blank.

$CIObj = Get-CMDriverPackage -Id "CM100042"
Unlock-CMObject $CIObj
Get-CMObjectLockDetails -InputObject $CIObj
