Issue:
We have a deployment of agents running via "infrastructure deployment Wizard" and by mistake we placed a network segment target that we should not install to. How do I stop this deployment right away?
Cause:
Sometimes an agent deployment accidentally targets invalid machines and must be stopped/cancelled before any harm is done.
Resolution:

Deployment jobs should stop immediately if you run the following command at an administrative command prompt:

CAF STOP DMDEPLOY

Also, if you just restart CAF via 'CAF STOP' / 'CAF START', the job will be completely gone as Infrastructure deployment jobs do not persist through a recycle of services.

This is not true for other deployments, such as via Software Delivery, only for items created via the Infrastructure Deployment Wizard.
