Void a sensor

Voiding a sensor permanently stops the sensor from running scans and causes all scheduled scan jobs and automation associated with the sensor to stop. A null and void sensor is permanently removed from CertCentral and cannot be reactivated. We recommend that you uninstall and delete the sensor from the server once it is null and void.

Before you begin

  • Administrative privileges are required.
