    "Timed-out waiting for server" error when exporting a large vApp in vCD 9.7

    PeterRizk Novice

      When exporting a large vApp (over 200GB) in vCD 9.7, the export process start and everything is going smoothly then towards the end I get this message:

      "Timed-out waiting for server". See the attached screen shot.

       

      Any ideas on how to extend the wait time so vCD doesn't encounter this error?

       

      Thanks.

          The best you can do is use OVFtool to download and upload large files using extra configuration values

          Some of them are:

           

           

           

           

            --X:connectionFileTransferRetryCount: Specifies how many times up/downloads

            --X:connectionReconnectCount        : Specifies how many times a reconnect

            --X:connectionReconnectDelay        : Specifies the delay in milliseconds

            --X:connectionRetryCount            : Specifies how many times up/downloads

           

           

            --X:logFile                         : Log internal events to given log file.

            --X:logLevel                        : Log level (none, quiet, panic, error,

                                                  warning, info, verbose, trivia).

            --X:progressSmoothing               : Estimate download damping interval.

            --X:vCloudKeepAliveTimeout          : Specify the vCloud connection keep

            --X:vCloudTimeout                   : vCloud server timeout defined in

                                                  seconds. Default is 60 seconds (

                                                  --X:vCloudTimeout=60).

           

           

           

           

          Your command will be similar to

          ovftool.exe --X:progressSmoothing=10 --X:vCloudTimeout=60000 --X:vCloudKeepAliveTimeout=60000 --X:

          logFile=0ovf.log --X:logLevel=info  "source-vApp" "target-file"
