Error description

  • At server version 7.1.1.x, an admin schedule can use the option
    'maxruntime=xx' (xx=minutes).
    By using the MAXRUNTIME parameter, a timeout value can be set
    for server processes that are started by scheduled
    administrative
    commands.
    
    When it is used, the timeout value is not being honoured.
    
    For example, setting maxruntime equal to 60mins, reclamation
    process is stopped
    within 1 minute:
