The Disable Target Device feature prevents a new target devices from booting. When enabled, each time a new target device boots, if the Auto-add option is enabled, a new record is automatically created in the database and the following message appears on the target device:
This target device has been disabled. Please Contact your system administrator.
Once contacted, the system administrator can validate the target device. After the administrator disables the option, the target device can boot successfully.
To disable or enable a target device, in the Console, right-click on the target device, then select the Disable or Enable menu option.
Note: Enable the Disable target device option on the template target device, to disable all target devices as they are added to a collection.
