Hi I am missing for restart in read only or write button in R80 that was in previous version. Can anyone help me about that? Sorry if I am repeating the question. I am new to checkmates.
Hi Vandana, I also want to offer an alternative. The R7x SmartDashboard best practice of connecting with read-only and switching to write mode once the other admins have left, may not be as important in R80 and above.
With the new option of having multiple administrators writing at the same time, you may just connect with read-write permissions all the time. As long as you haven't published your changes, no one will be affected.
What do you think?
There is no button to do this in R80 SmartConsole. However, it is possible to launch a second instance of SmartConsole from the same PC in Read Only mode (i.e. just launch SmartConsole again from the Start Menu).
Oh !!! Thank you so much to confirm
Although I agree being in read-only mode isn't important to avoid admin contention, it is generally best practice with network management to remain in read-only mode so you can't make changes accidentally.
Therefore i would like to enter read-only mode when I do any exploring and switch to read-write only when I have changes to make or in the few cases where items you want to view are grayed out/inaccessible in read-only mode.
