In some cases, if a deployment or update process is in progress indefinitely and does not show either a pass or fail deployment status, you can stop the deployment or update process and the provisioning in the cloud environment.

When you stop a deployment or an update process, the status changes to STOPPING and remains in that state until Application Services successfully stops the deployment or update process. The status then changes to STOPPED. Application Services does not delete the deployment or update process.

Note

You cannot stop or resume composite deployments.

Log in to Application Services as an application publisher and deployer.

Verify that you have a deployment or update process in progress.

1

Enter the name of the deployment or update process to cancel in the search text box.

2

From the search result list, select the deployment or update process.

The deployment summary page opens.

3

Click Stop in the toolbar above the deployment summary.

4

Confirm your selection.

When you stop a deployment, you can resume it, tear it down from the cloud, or delete the application deployment record from vCloud Automation Center. See Managing Deployments.

For an update process, you can continue to interact with the deployment by starting another update process. See Updating Application Deployments.
