How to extend the scripts aborting period on SteadyState RRS feed

Answers

  • The default time-out for scripts is 30 minutes.  This can be overridden by specifying a different time-out value in this registry key.  Navigate to this path in the registry:

            HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Windows SteadyState\Parameters

    And create a new value with the type REG_DWORD.  Set this to the number of minutes you want to use as a time-out.

    Since the system cannot be used while it's applying updates, it may be safer to simply log on as Administrator and run updates manually if there is a particular large update that's causing problems.

  • Hi,

     

    Base on my researched, I’m afraid there is impossible to extend the period of scripts, that’s by design.

     

    Thank you for your understanding.

  • Hi Rob,

    Thank you for your quick responce,
    and sorry for not answering soon.

    You gave me what I eagered to be given.
    I'll try it in the production environment.

    May I beg one more question related to WSS?
    That's the ralationship between WSS and WindowsUpdate.

    I set WindowsUpdate everynight at 23:00,
    and so as WSS at 25:00.

    Does WindowsUpdate work propery?
    Somepeople on the web say that WSS canceled WindowsUpdate.
    Is it true?

    Best Regards,
