The problem is that the global setting "backup notify timeout" is at 25 minutes, severely limiting the number of VMs we can have in a policy. We do not want to raise the global setting any higher. The way we're set up we can only have 4 or 5 VMs in a policy.
If the job takes longer than 25 minutes it fails.
Does anyone have any advice on a way to get more VMs in a policy without raising that global setting too high?
If you have a similar config - or are in a position to install Netbackup as a media server on the VCB box - then this will be a perfect solution for you too.
We then leave our Netbackup master server at the defaults of 5 mins etc...
This solution works fine - I backed up a VM with over 400Gb of vmdk disk yesterday. It took about 1hr 45 to mount and 4hrs 22 to backup completely.
Timeouts were not an issue - even though the Netbackup master server is still set to the defaults.
Thanks, that will not work for us because our VCB server is not a media server but a mere client. I'm hoping I can find a way to set this timeout locally on the VCB server without changing the global setting.
