How can I shut down the Indexer task?

kasperEH used Ask the Experts™
I have loaded extra Indexer tasks via a server document and now I want to shut them down. How can I do that? I have tried "tell indexer quit " and "tell updall quit", but they don't seem to have any effect. I know that I can change the server document and restart the server, but I would like to know if there is a different solution.

At the Console "Tell update quit" should stop any index tasks then just let normal indexing schedule start the correct number up again.
Alternatively using the Administrator client you can took at the server tasks view and see what tasks, and how many instances, are running. From that window you can end tasks.
