You will have to comment the line in bbwin.cfg on node 2 until the
second node becomes the active node. It is a manual action which is
not a good idea I know but there are no other alternatives for that.
However, you can try to remove the specific F rule and change the
default rules in % to be sure you will always have 50g left on your F:
drive so you won't get alerts on the second node because the F: drive
is missing.
