Detailed Description

Provides the ability to unlockan AppDisk that has the Id of a failed Task still associated with it. This allows another long-running task to operate on that scheme. The cmdlet will not unlock a scheme with a task still marked as being active. Use Stop-AppLibTask to stop any active task first.
