You can use the Stop-CMCloudDistributionPoint cmdlet to suspend distribution of content.

Examples

Example 1: Start the cloud distribution point service using an ID

PS C:\> Start-CMCloudDistributionPoint -Id "16777242"

This command starts the cloud distribution point service for the cloud distribution point that has the specified identifier.

Example 2: Start the cloud distribution point service using a name

PS C:\> Start-CMCloudDistributionPoint -Name "West01"

This command starts the cloud distribution point service for the cloud distribution point named West01.

Example 3: Start the cloud distribution point service using an object

PS C:\> $DistPnt = Get-CMCloudDistributionPoint -Id "16777242"
PS C:\> Start-CMCloudDistributionPoint -InputObject $DistPnt

The first command uses the Get-CMCloudDistributionPoint cmdlet to get the distribution point with the specified identifier, and then saves it in the $DistPnt variable.

The second command starts the cloud distribution point service for the distribution point stored in $DistPnt.
