It is often useful to include a profile entry on the LCFG server for some machine which is not using the configuration information from that server. This is called a "stub" entry. For example:

  • The profile may contain inventory information only, and the machine is not being configured by LCFG.

  • The profile may be used to contribute to spanning map information on this server, while the machine is actually being configured from some other server.

Setting the resource profile.format to stub will prevent an XML profile being generated, and will display special (green) symbols in the status display, rather then the usual "no acknowledgement" symbols.

If the stub is followed by a URL, the status display symbols will show an arrow, and will be linked to that URL. Typically, this would be the status page of the machine on its live server, or a static page, explaining the reason for the stub entry.
