Disabling a server stops all deployments, DDNS updates, and DHCP services. The server can then be removed from the network for repair. A server must always be disabled before it is repaired or replaced, even if it has failed and is no longer connected to the network.
Disabling the server with the Disable function informs Address Manager to stop its attempts to contact the server and maintain services. After repairing a disabled server, use the Enable function to reconnect the server. The Disable function only appears in the object name menu when the server is connected to Address Manager.
To disable an HSM-enabled DNS Server:
- From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
- Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
- Under Servers, click a server name. The Details tab for the server opens.
- Click the server name menu and select Disable.
