Install OnBase Initialization Timer Service
Select to install the OnBase Initialization Timer service, which checks the Web Server and Application Server every minute to determine whether they are initialized, or prepared to receive requests from the OnBase SharePoint integrations.
If the Web Server and Application Server are not initialized (for example, because their application pools were recycled), then the service initializes them so that requests from the OnBase SharePoint integrations will be processed more quickly.
If you choose not to use the service, then users may have to wait while the OnBase Web or Application Server initializes before their requests are processed.
To uninstall the service, clear this option.
