Good catch. The command line does not respect the method GUID when specified on the command line. I've opened Trac Ticket #443.

Thanks for your support .

So now is it possible to set the erasure task to "“Pseudorandom Data (1pass)” through a command line or i'll have to wait till the Trac Ticket #443. is resolved :)

I'd fix it in the coming days; if the fix is urgent you can try a nightly build on our downloads page (I'll state the build to use in the ticket when it's fixed)

Regular nightly build warnings apply.

Strange, I'm running build 6.0.10.2731 (see our nightly builds) and I can't reproduce the problem now... can you check if it's solved?

Hi Team,

We can now set “Pseudorandom Data (1pass)” method via command line. Thanks for the support.

We have a further requiremnt of setting the same task to run on every restart.can this be possible via command line?

Regards,
Gary

Ah, that's a problem. The run-on-restart tasks now only work for one-time restart tasks.

You might be able to get away with creating a new task via command line and task scheduler.
