Configuring the Resource Allocation Wait Time for Multistreamed Backups for Exchange Databases

Applies to: Exchange 2010 or later

When you configure backup operations to use multiple streams, the default amount of time that the job waits for additional streams to become available from the Job Manager is five minutes. Under certain conditions, it might take longer than five minutes for additional streams to become available, which might cause the job to run very slowly or to fail.

You can change the wait time by using the nResourceAllocTimeout additional setting for a standalone environment, or the nDagResourceAllocTimeout additional setting for a DAG environment.

For more information, see Add or Modify an Additional Setting.

Procedure

    • If you use a standalone environment, then from the CommCell Browser, at the client level, add the nResourceAllocTimeout additional setting using the values shown in the following table.
