SCCM: How to Pause a Task Sequence

It’s always handy to have the option to pause a Task sequence for troubleshooting or testing. If you did some changes you want to keep an eye on under the installation, and you don’t have time to sit and watch the whole process, it’s very useful with a Pause step in your task sequence. You can also use this pause step to perform some manually troubleshooting or run some manual scripts in specific areas of the task sequence.

There are many ways to perform a pause in a task sequence. But I use the command prompt solution, as I found it very easy to use and continue from.

How to Pause a Task Sequence

  • Insert step “run command line”
  • Type in the following  command to PAUSE task sequence:  cmd /c start "Paused TS: Close this to continue" /wait cmd

    That always worked till Windows 1803
    Now it gives ^C as result instantly & carries on (without the cmd window being even visible)

    Process completed with exit code 0
    ^C
    Command line cmd /c start “cmd” /wait cmd returned 0
    Process completed with exit code 0
