Disabling a Processing Rule Group

You can disable a processing rule group to temporarily stop its processing rules from being evaluated on monitored computers. Child processing rule groups that are not individually associated with computer groups are also disabled. If child processing groups are individually associated with computer groups, they are not disabled.

To disable a processing rule group:

  1. Expand Microsoft Operations Manager (default) in the left pane.
  2. Expand Rules in the left pane.
  3. Expand Processing Rule Groups in the left pane.
  4. In the left pane, click the processing rule group that you want to disable.
  5. Click Action on the menu bar.
  6. Click Properties on the Action menu.
  7. Clear the Enabled check box, and then click OK.
