Allow pause software distribution
There should be a way to pause or stop package distributions (not deployment). Sometimes a large package will inadvertently be distributed to distribution points during the day or overnight (very large package) and clogs the pipeline. Having the ability to pause or stop or reschedule those distributions would be helpful - especially when an e-fix needs to be distributed quickly but can't be distributed due to traffic.
We should already have several tools in place to control content distributions.
- You can set schedules for a distribution point to prevent or limit when data can be sent. You can also set rate limits.
- You can cancel a content distribution that’s in progress
- You can put a distribution point into maintenance mode which will cancel any in progress distributions and block future distributions until it’s taken out of maintenance mode
Let us know if none of these work for your scenario.
