deployment of agents to remote machines can fails with timeout errors. 

 

Question:

How do you increase the timeouts for agent deployments, in Infrastructure Deployment ? 

Environment:
CA Client Automation - All Versions
Answer:

The deployment timeout is controlled by 3 policies in the DSM->Manager->Infrastructure Deployment section:

Job failure timeout interval: 

Maximum number of minutes of inactivity to wait until a deploymentjob is assumed to have failed.

The default value is 120 minutes.

 

Message Delivery timeout interval: 

Maximum number of minutes of inactivity to wait until a message is deemed to have failed to be delivered.

The default value is 2 minutes.

 

Primer install timeout interval: 

Maximum number of minutes to wait for acknowledgement of a successful DMPrimer installation.

The default value is 10 minutes. 

Increase the value of these three policies to suit your environment.
