Pause distribution node?

We have a QlikView cluster with two backend servers running the Distribution service, and as usual tasks are allotted to the least loaded server when the task is triggered to run.

What I wonder is if it is possible to "paus" a node, so that it does not receive any new tasks to run, but only finishes any currently running tasks.

Would this maybe be possible by manually editing LoadBalancer.xml?

The aim is to be able to "drain" a distribution node to be able to restart the distribution server without affecting any running tasks.
