Agent unavailable status for online agents to allow for controlled agent shut down
At the moment we need to check if an agent is licenced before stopping it to ensure there are no active deployments, often having to remove agents from agent pools to ensure no further deployments start.
This idea is to be able to "wind down" an agent for shut down, this would put the agent in an "unavailable" state, allowing us to ensure no processes start against that agent before stopping it's service. Ideally we'd be able to set this status via an API call and be able to check if the agent has any running deployments via API as well.
