Setting FileLockWaitLimit, a configuration directive added to the Teradata PT global configuration file, twbcfg.ini, to any positive integer specifies the number of seconds Teradata PT jobs wait to obtain a file lock. Below is an example twbcfg.ini with the new directive:

CheckpointDirectory='/opt/teradata/client/15.10/tbuild/checkpoint'
LogDirectory='/opt/teradata/client/15.10/tbuild/logs'
FileLockWaitLimit='30'

If a job cannot acquire the file lock within the wait limit time, the job terminates.

If FileLockWaitLimit is not set, the default wait limit is five seconds.
