Cancel a Synchronization

You can cancel any synchronization that is currently in progress. Canceling the synchronization will roll-back any non-committed changes on the target. Any files that have been applied on the target remain after the cancellation.

In this case the synchronization will not be stopped as requested. For example, when trying to cancel the deployment of a COM+ application or a global ISAPI filter while the target server is in the draining state.

To cancel a synchronization

  1. In the Application Center snap-in, expand the cluster node, and then on the pop-up menu, click Synchronizations.

  2. In the Synchronizations view, in the list, click the synchronization, and then click Stop.
