Last Updated February 12, 2016
During a replication cycle, the following message is viewed on the Destination server:
Process: AeXSvc (1556) Thread ID: 53 Module: AeXSVC.exe Source: ReplicationJobThread Description: A non-fatal exception occured during replication. The replication job will be restarted from the last check point. (JobID: 998ab0b8-80f0-4fbb-a58e-1be27fa3555a, Exception: System.Net.WebException: The operation has timed out at System.Web.Services.Protocols.WebClientProtocol.GetWebResponse(WebRequest request) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.HttpWebClientProtocol.GetWebResponse(WebRequest request) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.Invoke(String methodName, Object parameters) at Altiris.NS.Replication.ItemReplicationWebServiceProxy.FinishGetItemHashes(String jobId, String operationId, ItemHashData hashes, ReplicationResult results, ReplicationDataState state) at Altiris.NS.Replication.DestinationReplicationSynchronizationProvider.HashObjects(Object proxy, String jobId, String operationId, String type, Object hashes, ReplicationResult results, ReplicationDataState state) at Altiris.NS.Replication.DestinationReplicationSynchronizationProvider.HashItems(ReplicationJob jobItem, String jobId, String operationId, ReplicationManifest manifest) at Altiris.NS.Replication.DestinationReplicationSynchronizationProvider.ProcessItemManifest(ReplicationJob jobItem, String jobId) at Altiris.NS.Replication.DestinationReplicationSynchronizationProvider.ProcessManifest(ReplicationJob jobItem, String jobId) at Altiris.NS.Replication.DestinationReplicationJobWorker.ProcessManifest(ReplicationJob jobItem, String jobId) at Altiris.NS.Replication.DestinationReplicationJobWorker.ProcessJob(ReplicationJob jobItem) at Altiris.NS.Replication.ReplicationJobThread.ProcessJob())
All Notification Server timeouts were analyzed and found to be set well past the interval that the timeout is noticed in. In this case, a proxy server was configured in the environment with a low timeout value which caused the replication to fail.
Disable the configured proxy.
Once the proxy server was removed from the test environment, the replication completed successfully.
Applies To Notification Server 7.0 (any version)
