Token Ring

I'm sure someone with more network savvy than me can confirm it, but I can tell you in my token ring office, not every drop has a workstation connected to it, and the open ones are not terminated in any way. And I can move a workstation from drop to drop, or take one off the ring completely, without affeting the network at all.

Most token ring systems can tolerate removal of a device without breaking the ring. This helps not only if a device is removed but if the hardware fails for any reason. If your network is in a physical hub-and-spoke setup (all your PCs are attached to a hub-like device, or MTU ) then these devices should be able to tolerate removal of a PC. Make sure you remove the network cable from the MTU as well as the PC so it can fail over that port and keep the ring going. If your network is in a physical bus, I "think" you should be all right, but consult the vendor docs to make sure.

Hope that helps -
