If you pause, cancel, or interrupt the upload of a media file, you can resume it.

If you have to pause the upload of a media file, you can resume the process later.
  • If you log out of vCloud Director and log back in, the transfer history is lost. You cannot resume the upload.
  • The default timeout for pending transfer sessions is 60 minutes. For information about changing the default, see https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2149250.
  • During pending or stopped transfers, a keep-alive heartbeat of the session is generated every 15 minutes. To ensure that the session does not time out when tasks are paused, make sure that you set the session timeout value to more than 15 minutes.
