Siemens TIA Portal V13 - Networks - Enable / Disable

Siemens TIA Portal V13 - Networks - Enable / Disable

I have two PLC's networked together over an PN/IE_1 network. They both have separate IP addresses and are declared as such in the Device & Networks configuration page.

My problem is that I wish to make the second PLC an option which is configurable on an HMI (i.e. I need a method for disabling configured PLC's within a defined PN/IE_1 network).

I have attached a screen shot from such a situation and I need to make PN/IE_1 optional?
