Certainly - I'm in the middle of setting up some scopes on dhcp that I don't necessarily want to be active right away for testing purposes or other reasons. - by default solarwinds is activating the scope. I have to go into dhcp mgmt in MS server admin tools to disable it, which defeats the purpose of using SW for managing this.
I think Solarwinds should prompt you, just as MS does, after creating the scope, to activate the scope or not...
