as we all know it is no problem to backup even very large databases (https://communities.netapp.com/message/87965#87965 ), and verification can be completely offloaded to another storage controller and SQL server.
IHAC who did exactly such an offload and now gets a timeout error:
[01:10:37.956] [CHDB018] WARNING: Federated remote backup threads timed out after  minutes.
Does anyone know a way (registry key?) to adjust the timeout value?

I'm having the same problem.
Did you solved it? How?
By the way as the verification job failed I have the database attached, the vmdks linked to the vm, the datastores presented, and the volumes cloned. Do I have to revert all this automatic work made by SMSQL manually?
Thank you very much in advance and best regards.

After opening a case with NetApp support service I have finally solved this issue.
The solution is to modify (or add if we don't have it) a registry key named RemoteBackupThreadTimeout located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Network Appliance\SnapManager for SQL Server\Server, that is used as timeout for remote backup threads. This key is a DWORD and indicates number of minutes. Its default value is 480 (minutes).
There is no need to restart SMSQL service after this change.
