When playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on my own dedicated server, I cannot execute certain commands (Ex. "sv_cheats 1", "noclip") via my console. I receive the error:

"Can't change replicated ConVar sv_cheats from console of client, only server operator can change its value."

So the question is, how can I make my server recognize me as the server operator?

  • This is a valid question with a factual answer and if I've read the about correctly, belongs in arqade. Anyone want to elaborate on how this was off-topic?

  • @Cole Nobody said it was off-topic. It was just downvoted. Why, I don't know, but I'm just clarifying; there are no close votes on it.

  • @fbueckert yeah I can't see that (or at least I don't know how) so I was just saying.

Did you set an rcon password? If so then, rcon_password somesuperlongandawesomepassword will elevate your permissions to OP. Once elevated you may then use rcon sv_cheats 1 to turn on cheats.


rcon - issue remote console command

sv_cheats - cheats for server command

1 - enabled

If not you may still be able to set one from the dedicated server console, OR issue the commands you want there.

HERE is a guide I found to set your rcon_password on the server at server launch in the cvar_list.
