I have had some reports of clients upgrading to XIV GUI 3.0 and seeing occasional timeouts connecting to their XIVs. This is annoying management issue rather than a data access issue. This appears to only occur when the machine is in a remote location to the person managing the XIV. One simple solution would be to install the GUI on a server local to the XIV and use a remote desktop connection to run the GUI from that server. But there is a way to modify the XIV GUI timeouts and eliminate this issue regardless of where you are:
1) Shutdown the XIV GUI.
2) Edit the following file: xiv-constants.properties
The location for this file in Windows is either:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Storage\XIV\XIVGUI\properties\xiv-constants.properties
Open the file in notepad or some other text editor and change:
# Timeouts (seconds) connect=8 command=30
# Timeouts (seconds) connect=30 command=30
I found that with Windows 7 I needed to run the text editor as Administrator to stop the file being opened as read only (meaning I could not save the changes).
3) Start the GUI and confirm there are no more timeouts.
