How to Increase the ASP.NET Timeout

From the myITforum TipLine:

You might need to increase the ASP.NET timeout for web services on a server for a number of reasons. One reason, might be performance issues – particularly for servers that are hosting the WSUS role.

Increase the ASP.NET timeout…

  1. Make a copy of \Program Files\Update Services\WebServices\ClientWebService\Web.Config.
  2. Open \Program Files\Update Services\WebServices\ClientWebService\Web.Config.
  3. Find the element “<httpRunTime”. It will look like this (in an unmodified web.config): <httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”4096″ />
  4. Modify httpRunTime by adding an executionTimeout attribute: <httpRuntime maxRequestLength=”4096″ executionTimeout=”3600″ />
  5. Save the web.config to a different location and copy the modified one into the directory.
  6. From an elevated command prompt, run IISReset to restart IIS.
