VxRail Validation step

Hello expert,

I have a problem with VxRail validation, when I try to restart a validation I get this error message:

"Validate Configuration

Validation may require several minutes or longer depending upon the size and type of cluster configuration. Review settings on the back button or directly on the left navigation.

Please wait for the previous instance <---> to complete."

How can I stop the current instance, to restart another validation?

Thanks in advance.
