    disabling vMa Log Collection with flag --force

    jose_maria_gonzalez Master

      Hi there team,


      Just out of curiosity, what does the flag –force do? I have never tried before but a chap here had a very good question as to how you go on about using it and most of all when would you used this flag?


      I mean we know that "it forces disabling of logging even when the target is unreachable. Otherwise villoger disable fails" but what if we used --force when the ESX/ESXi is unreacheable and then our management network comes back up again?


      Thanking you in advance,



      Jose Maria Gonzalez
