The Stop-VMFailover cmdlet stops failover of a virtual machine. If the virtual machine is running, this cmdlet turns the virtual machine off and cancels failover. For a test
failover, this cmdlet stops the test failover and deletes the test virtual machine. For a planned failover that has been started on a primary virtual machine, this cmdlet
cancels that action and restarts replication, which allows you to start the primary virtual machine.
