Detailed Description

The Disable-CMTaskSequence cmdlet disables a Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager task sequence. A task sequence includes configuration and operating system deployment settings for a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager client computer. When you disable a task sequence, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager no longer advertises the sequence to clients.

You can specify a name or ID to disable a specific sequence or use the Get-CMTaskSequence cmdlet to obtain a sequence to disable. To disable a sequence only if it has a particular security scope, you can specify a security scope along with a name or ID.

You can use the Enable-CMTaskSequence cmdlet to enable a sequence later. To remove a task sequence completely, use the Remove-CMTaskSequence cmdlet.

Parameters

-InputObject<IResultObject>

Specifies a task sequence object. To obtain a task sequence object, use the Get-CMTaskSequence cmdlet.

The second command disables the task sequence stored in $CMTS.


PS C:\> $CMTS = Get-CMTaskSequence -Id CM100007PS C:\> Disable-CMTaskSequence -InputObject $CMTS
