About Disabling HA in Components Not Configured for It

If you have any USM Appliance Standard or Enterprise Sensors that you did not configure for HA, you must still run the HA disablement command on them after you disable HA in the USM Appliance Standard or Enterprise Server pair. This removes any firewall rules created when HA was configured.

Important: If you fail to do this, you can introduce a vulnerability into the network.
