Can you configure Solarwinds to ignore NIC interfaces that are in a "disabled" state?

Hi all,

I've just inherited a new install of Solarwinds and am fine tuning some of the config to reduce unnecessary alerts.

We have several Windows nodes where interfaces are enabled for monitoring, but are disabled in the OS.

As a result, Solarwinds reports "one or more interfaces are in an unknown state"

My question is, can you configure Solarwinds to ignore interfaces with a status of "disabled"? Yes i could stop monitoring them, but with hundreds of servers, if someone starts using one of these interfaces, i'm not going to know, and it isn't going to be monitored?

TIA for any help.
