Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 

Backup_timeout


Short Description: increase the timeout interval

Description:
By default the Notes API functions used in third party backup software allow 15 minutes for each backup unit to complete before timing out. This is to cater to any potential server hangs that could prevent the backup from completing. A backup unit may be a single database or it may be a group of databases. This depends on the backup software.

To increase the timeout interval use the notes.ini parameter
BACKUP_TIMEOUT=xx
where xx is the number of minutes to allow for the backup before timing out.

Alternatively, it is possible to set a different notes.ini parameter
BACKUP_NO_TIMEOUT=1
which results in no timeout. However, there is potential danger of this leading to a backup run which lasts forever, because it is waiting for a condition that will never be fullfilled.
