    Hi Jim,

    Using your example in the video, if you know one site is already down, can you speed up the changeover to the remaining good sites by manually off-lining the offending service in traffic manager. I'm thinking this manual control would also be handy for any maintenance activity that was region wide (if such an activity was needed).

    Kind regards
