Unable to create large VTL on Linux


When creating a Large_VTL on a Linux machine, the NetVault WebUI takes too long to respond and the session expires.

On a Linux NetVault Server, when creating a Large_VTL, if the WebUI times out due to inactivity or the user closes the WebUI while the creation is still in progress, the VTL creation does not occur.

In the WebUI, add a VTL using the Re-add previously generated virtual device option.

Browsing a folder with a large number of files times out

During a restore, browsing and expanding a folder with a large number of files, such as 10,000 or more, fails.

After several minutes of browsing, the restore job times out, the WebUI does not respond, or the error, “The remote machine: [MACHINE_NAME] is unavailable,” appears.

Use Catalog Search to find the item that you want to restore.

Manually increase the web services physical client long timeout settings by completing the following steps:

On the NetVault Server Settings page, under Services, click Web Service.
In the Web Service dialog box, configure the Physical Client Long Timeout setting to the maximum amount of 60,000 seconds.
