We are getting a timeout on the Domain.Build(myURL) call. Domain.Build used to run in just under one minute, now it tries and fails just after one minute.

So, is there a way to govern the timeout in the URL properties? We are using MS SQLServer 2008, NOT 2008 R2.

I have tried setting the Domain.Sessions SessionConfiguration collection by adding a SessionConfiguration with a defaultquerytimeout set to 300 seconds.

Wondering if that will have an affect, in otherwords, during the Domain.Build, will the underlying domain build code, use the SessionConfiguration collection to setup the connection?

Thanks.... Ken

One Answer:

Hello Ken,

you might need to increase connection timeout.

Try the following snippet to set connection timeout to 3 minutes:

sqlserver://YourServer/YourDatabase?Connection Timeout=180

Connection URLs support the same parameters as connection strings.

Alternatively you can use standard connection strings:

From app.config:

  connectionString="Data Source=YourServer;Initial Catalog=YourDatabase;Integrated Security=True;Connection Timeout=180">

or from the code:

 var connectionString = "Data Source=YourServer;Initial Catalog=YourDatabase;Integrated Security=True;Connection Timeout=180";
 domainConfiguration.ConnectionInfo = new ConnectionInfo("sqlserver", connectionString);

For upgrade you might probably need to increase command timeout as well:

There is a special session configuration called "System" that is used for system purposes:

<domain name="mydomain"
    <session name="System" commandTimeout="180" />

or the same from the code

 domainConfiguration.Sessions.System = new SessionConfiguration {CommandTimeout = 180};
