    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,
