Description: How to configure stanzas in netvault.cfg to have scripts on Netware wait before executing a backup job
Symptoms: NLM 3.05c introduced a Pre- and Postscript option on the Backup Options tab of the Thin Client plugin if used with the correct NLM. This will execute Netware scripts (usually .ncf files) on the Netware box before and after backup. However, by default those scripts are non-blocking, i.e. the backup job continues immediately after calling them.
The netvault.nlm tries to read config values from a file called netvault.cfg that needs to be present in the same directory than the NLM. It can contain various stanzas, among which there is
Post execution delay=60
If you create an empty file called "netvault.cfg" in that location and add those two lines, after calling the scripts the job will wait for the specified time in seconds before continuing.
