If there is a facter fact which identifies those macines, you could use that fact in an "if" test round the resource, or in an "unless" or suchlike if the resource supports it.

Alternatively, if you are using hiera, include "nodes" as one of the hiera levels, and add hiera settings for the nodes you want to leave alone.
