Increasing the Fastback DR timeout value

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How can the Fastback DR timeout value be increased to allow more time for the DR Hub to reply to a request?

Cause

APAR IC85828, introduced in version 6.1.7 and above, allows users to configure a DR timeout value. This can be configured to allow more time for the DR Hub to reply to the request.

Answer

Below are the instruction to enable the configurable timeout:

1.Create a file called mpi.ini in the Fastback server 'dr' directory:

"C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\FastBack\dr"

Add the following to the contents of the file:

[Config]
MinTimeToWaitInSec=###

(The ### is the timeout value in seconds. If this file does not exist, the default timeout value is 900 seconds.)

Note: For issues regarding the the MinTimeToWaitInSec values the following steps are suggested (See related APAR IC99633):

1. Perform FAST BACK Upgrade to FIX Level(s)
2. Create mpi.ini file in "C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\FastBack\dr" with the following entry:
[Config]
MinTimeToWaitInSec= 10800
or
[Config]
MinTimeToWaitInSec= 14400
