Disabling Rules (NSM Procedure)

You can disable a rule without deleting it in cases where you run tuning experiments, troubleshoot an issue, or otherwise need to make a quick or temporary modification.

To disable a rule, right-click inside the No. column (the first column) of the rule and select Disable. The rule remains in the rulebase, but a gray diagonal stripe indicates that it has been disabled. While the rule is disabled, NSM does not install the rule on any devices.

To enable a rule, right-click inside the No. column (the first column) of the rule and select Disable again to clear the check box. You can disable rule groups using the same method. For more information, see the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide.

Note: You cannot disable an entire security policy or a rulebase.
