Cancel Option (Distributed Replay Administration Tool)

The Microsoft SQL Server Distributed Replay administration tool, DReplay.exe, is a command-line tool that you can use to communicate with the distributed replay controller. This topic describes the cancel command-line option and corresponding syntax.

The cancel option cancels the current operation that is running on the controller.

dreplay cancel [-m controller] [-q] 


  • -m controller
    The computer name of the controller. You can use "localhost" or "." to refer to the local computer.

    If the -m parameter is not specified, the local computer is used.

  • -q
    Quiet mode. Does not prompt for confirmation.

    The -q parameter is optional.


In the following example, a cancel request is submitted in quiet mode. The value localhost indicates that the controller service is running on the same computer as the administration tool.

dreplay cancel –m localhost -q


You must run the administration tool as an interactive user, as either a local user or a domain user account. To use a local user account, the administration tool and controller must be running on the same computer.
