Hi Rolf

you can find this in the "bb" manpage :

disable HOSTNAME.TESTNAME DURATION <additional text>
    Disables a specific test for DURATION minutes. This will cause the
    status of this test to be listed as "blue" on the BBDISPLAY server,
    and no alerts for this host/test will be generated. If DURATION is
    given as a number followed by s/m/h/d, it is interpreted as being in
    seconds/minutes/hours/days respectively.

You can even schedule this :

MY_DATE=`date +%s --date=tomorrow

$BB localhost "schedule $MY_DATE disable $MY_HOST.$MY_TEST $MY_DURATION
