How to increase timeout values on an IWSVA (ICAP) appliance

Timeout Value Resolution / Adjustments
To avoid the update failure notification, increase the time interval between retries:
1.Open /usr/iwss/lib/aucfg.ini.
2.Look for the [Downloader] section and add the line “retry_delay”.
This “retry_delay” is the time in milliseconds before another connection retries the update. The default value is 0, and setting it longer than five (5) minutes will avoid the issue.
 
It should appear like this:
 
[Downloader]
Retry=3
retry_delay=360000
 
3.Save and close the file.
 
You can also set the update frequency to be longer than 15 minutes. This will decrease the possibility that the issue will occur.
