SQl 2008 suspend log shipping

Experts,

what's the best way to suspend log shipping. I need to do a little maintenance on my standby server which may take a few hours. I'd like not to loose my settings so don't want to uncheck the "enable this as primary database......" flag. Should i just disable the jobs? or is there a more convenient way to do this?

thanks,

You can disable  and then enable the jobs thats responsible for log shipping.Make sure you have enough space to store the logs in the meantime as they may get huge.

one of the hardware guys needed to reconfigure the disc allocation on a set of our servers.

so is disabling the jobs the only way to do this? or the best way?

Then I would say is just disable the jobs and enable them back on when the server is up.It should work.Just make sure you have enough space to store the log backups in the meantime.
