Sometimes you wish to temporarily stop the Dome9 agent. This is usually in order to troubleshoot some networking / FW / Dome9 related issues. This is how to do so on Windows:
- Open the local services control panel app. (start-> search for 'local services')
- Locate the 'Dome9 Security Agent' service
- Pause it
- Open a command line console as Administrator
net stop dome9
After service is stopped your emergency policy will be in place, you can now do manual firewall changes but note they will all be overridden once the service is up again.
