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