Cud operations on gslb, gslbservice, gslbgeodbprofile and other federated objects will be rejected.

The rest-api disabling helps in upgrade scenarios where we don’t want configuration sync operations to the gslb member when the member is being

upgraded.

This configuration programmatically blocks the leader from accepting new gslb configuration when member sites are undergoing upgrade.
