2nd backup set not timing out when needed

Recommended Posts

so we have 2 backup sets, one we keep on site for a week and another of site. Every week we swap them out so we have 2 backup destinations and have the timeout set to 4 mins. However the scripts don't stop until they've processed through all the source data to see what needs to be backed up. For most of the scripts this isn't a big deal, they end up stoping 4-5mins total, but there's a few that take 1-5+ hours. Is there a way to make it not do this and just time out when it that backup set isn't in?


here's an example:

+ Normal backup using KSRC01D at 6/27/2009 1:35 AM (Execution unit 4)

To Backup Set 1-KSRC01D...


- 6/27/2009 1:35:04 AM: Copying Local Disk (D:) on KSRC01

Media request for "1-1-KSRC01D" timed out after waiting 0:04:00

6/27/2009 2:42:54 AM: Execution incomplete

Remaining: 1535 files, 753.7 MB

Completed: 0 files, zero KB

Performance: 0.0 MB/minute

Duration: 01:07:51 (01:07:03 idle/loading/preparing)

here this backup set isn't in so instead of taking 4 mins it's taking over an hour.


I'm not the one that made the scripts this way so if there's a better way to do it with 2 backup sets let me know too.
