Sync : Timeout expired or the server is not responding RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Guys,

     I want to implement offline application services for iPhone apps using sync framework. I already install visual studio 2010 , SQL server 2008 R2 and sync framework 2.1 and also followed the sync framework toolkit documentation (which included with downloaded sync framework 2.1 ). Now I am trying to configure and provisioning the database (size 6GB)  through command prompt as per sync framework toolkit documentation process but getting exception error like below :

     Can someone tell, what reason for getting this error and how can solve the error?

  • modify the utility and set the CommandTimeout property


    set the timeout before the line prov.Apply();

  • JuneT,

    As per your instruction, I have set commandTimeout property like below but still getting the Timeout issue

    prov.CommandTimeout = 3600;

  • Set it higher then. During provisioning, sync fx will populate the tracking tables. If you have 10 million rows in a table it will insert 10 million rows in the tracking table as well.
