Unix CDM config deploy

Trying to deploy a custom config file to monitor /var on all Unix systems. It's already monitored on most systems, but we need to make sure. How can I keep the "Disk" field intact. Removing the "Disk=" switch from the config file makes the installation fail. Leaving it blank clears that field (with both Edit and Overwrite switches). Or is it not relevant? As far as I know, we don't use that field for anything, so having it blank isn't really a problem, but I need to be sure that each probe is monitoring the local /var filesystem. So, how can I get it to leave the current entry in the Disk switch intact?
