Configuring timeout period for saveset removal request

By default, the timeout period for saveset removal request is set to 600 seconds. When the Web Service Worker Process (nvwsworker) sends the delete request to Media Manager, it waits for 600 seconds. If the Media Manager is unable complete the request within this period, the Web Service Worker Process times out and reports an error (“Failed to receive reply from Media Manager”). If you receive this error, change the SavesetRemoveTimeout setting in the webservice.cfg file.
