Adding a large application package via the Management Server console on App-V v5 fails with "Timeout expired"

View products that this article applies to.


In Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) v5, adding a large application package (e.g., Visual Studio 2010) using the Management Server console fails with the following error:

There were problems interacting with the database on the server. The error was: Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.

This issue occurs because the package import operation exceeded the database timeout period.

To resolve this issue, increase the DatabaseCommandTimeout value by performing the following steps:

1. Navigate to the following directory:

%systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft Application Virtualization Server\ManagementService
2. Open the Web.config file using Notepad and increase the following value:

<add key="DatabaseCommandTimeout" value="30"/> <!-- in second, 30 is system default value -->
3. Attempt to add the package again using the Management Server. If the import operation fails, continue to increase the DatabaseCommandTimeout value until the operation succeeds.
