What Takes Precedence for Linux: Usage Setting in a Target or a Usage Setting Set by the msconfig Command?

Hi all ...

I have targets set up to allow usage tracking on my entire estate by default (Disabled=False for usage tracking). 

I now want to deploy the Inventory Agent on some Linux servers using the Third Party Deployment method, but I don't want to enable usage tracking on these servers.

I can't create a target by operating system because that option does not exist.  There's no naming convention available to me that would identify a computer as a Linux server, so I can't create a "deny usage tracking" target for all computers whose name is like <some name>.  I won't even be doing the deployment myself, so I won't know the server names in advance.

However, I can use the msconfig command to modify the Linux machine's config.ini after the agent is initially deployed and set Disabled=True.

What takes precedence here - will the target setting overwrite the config.ini file and reset Disabled to False or will the setting made by the msconfig command "stick" even if a target includes the recently installed Linux machine?

Generally, FNMS target settings will overwrite manual updates to the machine's config.ini file.
