The update-node-config subcommand updates the configuration data of a node.

This subcommand can update any node, regardless of whether the node is enabled for remote communication. If a node that is enabled for remote communication is updated, the node is not enabled for remote communication after the update.

Options of this subcommand specify the new values of the node’s configuration data. The default for these options is to leave the existing value unchanged.

This subcommand does not require the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) remote protocol or secure shell (SSH) to be configured to update the node. You may run this subcommand from any host that can contact the DAS.

This subcommand is supported in remote mode only.
