Chapter 7. Network Configuration > Disable a protocol without removing it

7.8. Disable a protocol without removing it

When you're troubleshooting or testing a system it's sometimes necessary to turn off a protocol for one or more adapters. Or perhaps you need to turn off a protocol for security or performance reasons or because of a conflict. In either case, you probably want to retain the protocol so you don't have to reinstall it later. Or you might need to retain the protocol for use on a second interface.

You have two options for preventing an interface from using an installed protocol: uninstall the protocol or disable it for either a selected adapter or all adapters. Uninstalling a protocol removes it from the system completely. Disabling it simply turns it off for the selected adapter(s).
