Possibe to kill a copy job if it hasn't completed by x time?

Hi there,

 

As above, does anyone know if is it possible to kill a job if it hasn't completed after a certain time or x amount of minutes after it started?  Running DP 6.20 Windows.  The job is actually an automated object copy job that copies a ton of D2D backups off to an MSL.

 

Thanks

 

Graham

Sorry, I kind of forgot to add the all important word "automatically"!!  So to confirm, I'd like to have the job automatically cancel / abort if it hasn't completed after a certain amount of time.

It is not integrated in Data Protector right now. An enhancement request could be useful.

The best thing you could do right now is to assemble a small script the runs at the latest allowed point in time, check if the copy job is active and terminate it. This should be fairly simple to accomplish since the whole DP functionality is available on the CLI.

Regards,
Sebastian
