Configuring the time the SnapProtect Software Waits for the SnapProtect Operation

Applies to:

  • DB2
  • DB2 MultiNode

The SnapProtect software waits 2 minutes for the SnapProtect operation to complete. You can set this to a higher value to allow more time for the job to complete. If the job does not complete when this time expires, the SnapProtect software marks the job as failed and brings the database out of the quiesced state.

Note: The database remains in the quiesced state until this time expires.
