  1. Open the LnkMaps.config file, located in the ConfigurationFiles folder of your Security Center installation folder.
  2. To disable clustering, add the following code to the <Maps> line:
  3. To disable clustering only if there are less than x number of map objects on your map, add the following code to the <Maps> line, and specify the desired number of map objects:
  4. To change the default number of map objects that must be close together in order for cluster bubbles to appear, add the following code to the <Maps> line, and change the number from 3 to the desired number:
  5. Save the LnkMaps.config file, and then restart Config Tool and Security Desk.


The next time you open Config Tool or Security Desk, the map clustering changes are made.
