  • ReportingCommandTimeout—If reports are timing out, increase the value by 300. If reports are still timing out, increase the value by another 300.
  • DbCommandTimeout—Keep this value synchronized with the ReportingCommandTimeout value. Note: The DbCommandTimeout setting in the CoreSettings.config file is the same setting as the Altiris Console > Server Settings > Notification Server Settings > Database Settings Command timeout field value.)

These changes are implemented immediately. It is not required to restart services or reboot the Notification Server computer for the setting changes to take effect.
