Description of problem:
We have a cancel button in the UI, but it doesn't seem like you can use it to cancel something once you've started a deployment. How can I stop a deployment that is running before it completes or errors? How can I fix something that is errored and try again? When we hit an error, everything stays read-only, and I can't modify a value that may have been messing us up. I thought I might be able to by canceling, and starting over again, but without a cancel, I feel like I have to create a new deployment, and fill everything out again.

Should the cancel button work? If we can't cancel anything, we should remove the button.

For short term fix, let's be sure the cancel button is disabled if it won't work.

For long term we can file a new BZ to track work of improving the usability of the cancel.

I have the same problem with tp2 rc9 ISO. In the deployment, the cancel button is greyed out and I cannot cancel the deployment.

If I go to see the list of deployments, there is also no delete button, just an edit one. So I cannot remove the stuck deployment.

It should be possible to cancel a running or stuck deployment. I know that at certain points, we cannot do anything for the RHEV or OSP hosts that we deploy but at least, we could bring the Satellite system back to a functional one.
