Sending virus definitions for the group in SMSMSE Console fails with error message similar to this one:
CABARC.EXE timed out and failed to create file C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\CMaF\2.1\UPLOADS\DEFS_ 20120911.002.cab
There is builtin timeout of 180 seconds defined for the cabarc.exe to complete creating definitions. This timeout can be modified by setting following registry key:
with REG_DWORD value representing number of seconds.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Cmaf\2.1\ArchivalTimeOutInSeconds REG_DWORD 0x000001E0
- this sets cabarc.exe timeout to 8 minutes (480 seconds)
