You can suspend network communications with the Mirage server for the branch reflectors and for regular endpoint devices. Suspending network operations for a branch reflector still allows peer clients to download layer files from the branch reflector cache, but the branch reflector cannot download new files from the server.
About this task
When you resume network operations, the branch reflector or the individual endpoint device can communicate with the Mirage server cluster.
- In the Mirage Management console tree, right-click System Configuration, select Settings, and click the Branch Reflectors tab.
- Right-click the branch reflector device and select Suspend Network Operations or Resume Network Operations.
- (Optional) Select Connection State from the column headings drop-down menu to view which branch reflectors are connected or suspended in the Branch Reflectors window.
