How to Stop Accidental SCCM ConfigMgr Rollout Traffic over WAN Configuration Manager

How to Stop Accidental SCCM ConfigMgr Rollout Traffic over WAN Configuration Manager. Over the years, we (SCCM admins) have been waiting for the “Big Red Button” feature, which can help to stop all the accidental deployments, package replications over the WAN.

Even I had a bad experience deploying office packages to remote DPs in Australia. During office hours, we deployed the office package to Australia DPs, and the WAN bandwidth was NOT very good. So SCCM started using 80% of the total bandwidth available for business users.

All the business applications started getting performance issues like slowness and not responding etc. Natively, SCCM / ConfigMgr doesn’t have any mechanism to stop the package replication or traffic over the WAN immediately. However, we can have some workarounds to stop the SCCM WAN traffic. I don’t think most of them are very effective.

The “big red button” is one of the most requested features in SCCM ConfigMgr. However, this feature or button is not available in native SCCM /ConfigMgr. Adaptiva OneSite is an Enterprise-class P2P technology that is scalable, secure, and business-friendly product. 

Adaptiva OneSite 4.0 version has the most awaited featured “Big Red Button” available to PAUSE/RESUME SCCM traffic worldwide.  Adaptiva OneSite helps SCCM/ConfigMgr administrators instantly pause/resume all SCCM WAN traffic by pushing this button.

When an SCCM admin initiated rollout accidentally, which needs to be stopped before it gets deployed on hundreds of thousands of systems, this “big red button” immediately halts all network activity worldwide.
