Name [in]

Product Availability

The PauseConfiguration method will pause the server object configuration. Pausing the configuration does not interupt any requests that are being executed by instances of server objects managed by that configuration. A paused server object, hevever, will refuse future requests.

You should pause server objects if you want to lock requests from being processed, but you want requests in process to complete. Once all objects are not longer in use, you can perform necessary operations (such as database maintenance, stopping the server object configuration to changes properties, etc). Use the GetConfigurationStatus and IServerObjectConfigurationStatus to determine if any server objects are in use.

Use the StartConfiguration method to resume the server object configuration.
