Starting in Steel-Belted RADIUS version 5.41, there is a parameter that can be added to the radius.ini file. This parameter dictates how long the server should wait before it shuts down due to slow or failed initialization of the internal database.
By increasing this time out, the server will wait longer to complete the replica package processing.
This parameter is useful for servers that are running on older, slower hardware, or on servers that are handling a large amount of authentication traffic at startup time.
To implement this parameter edit the radius.ini file as follows:
- Place the following parameter at the end of the CONFIGURATION section.
StartupTimeout = 600
(The value for this parameter is measured in seconds. In our example, we are setting the timeout to 600 seconds, which equates to 10 minutes.)
- Save the radius.ini file.
- Restart the Steel-Belted RADIUS service. (Consult the administrators guide on how to restart the service.)
